How to cook Sinampalukang Manok

Sinampalukang Manok Recipe is like Sinigang but it is not a Sinigang variant because the main ingredients are sauteed first.   Sinigang soup is characterized by its sour and savoury taste and  is a very popular Filipino comfort food. In fact, in almost every province in the Philippines, there is a different version of sinigang mostly influenced by the availability of  the souring ingredients or pampaasim.

Other Sinigang dish that we have are the following Sinigang na Baka, Sinigang na Bangus with puso ng Saging, Seafood Sinigang, Sinigang na Hipon, Pork Sinigang, Sinigang na Isda with Sigarilyas and Sinigang na Bangus sa Strawberry.

Sinampalukang Manok is a  famous Filipino sour soup dish and one of the favorites of every Filipino because of its savory taste. Best paired with Filipino Fried Chicken, Bagnet recipe, Daing na Bangus or Lechon Kawali.
