· 3/4 kilo Pork, cut into chunks
· 3 tomatoes, sliced
· 2 onions, diced
· 5 cloves of garlic, minced
· 100 grams Kangkong (river spinach)
· 100 grams String beans
· 2 pieces horse radishes, sliced
· 3 pieces gabi (taro), pealed
· 200 grams sampalok (tamarind)
· 3 tablespoons of patis (fish sauce)
· 1 liter of rice wash or water


  • Boil sampalok in water until the shell shows cracks. Let cool then peal off the shells and with a strainer, pour samplalok (including water) into a bowl. Gently massage the sampalok meat off the seeds, strain again.

  • In a pot, sauté garlic and onion then add the tomatoes. Let simmer for 5 minutes

  • Add pork and fish sauce then add the rice wash. Bring to a boil then simmer for 15 minutes then add the gabi. Continue to simmer for another 15 minutes or until the pork is tender

  • Add the horse radish, simmer for 10 minutes then add the string beans and kangkong. Let boil for 2 minutes.

  • Serve piping hot

Cooking Tip:
· Instead of sampalok fruit (tamarind), you can substitute it with any commercial souring seasoning like Knorr sampalok seasoning or tamarind bouillon cubes for this pork sinigang recipe.
