  • 1 kilo Pork into small chunk cubes you can now buy Pork Sinigang cut in Supermarkets
  • 2 medium size onion quartered
  • 2 medium size tomato quartered
  • 1 radish sliced diagonally
  • 4 gabi taro root, cubed
  • 2 medium size eggplant sliced diagonally
  • 1 bundle sitaw cut into 2 inches length
  • 1 bundle kangkong leaves
  • 2 tbsp Sampaloc / Tamarind Sinigang mix
  • 3 Siling haba
  • Salt or Patis


  • Wash the pork cubes thoroughly. Put in a large pot, cover with enough water then let it stay there for 5 to 10 minutes, this process will lessen the scum that rises to the surface when you boil the meat. Now throw the reddish water after minutes.
  • Add water again enough to cover the meat and bring to a boil, and simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until pork meat are tender. Take out all scum that rises to the surface.
  • When adding more water, make sure you add boiling water not just tap water, adding tap water will cause the meat shrink back.
  • When the meat is already tender add gabi (taro root), and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until gabi are tender and start to disintegrate.
  • Add onion, tomato and sinigang mix and simmer for 3-5 minutes.
