Pork Sinigang Recipe

By 11:36 AM

Pork Sinigang, a Filipino soup dish also widely known as Sinigang na Baboy is a Pinoy favorite especially during the cold season. What makes this dish unique is the sour taste of the soup. Traditionally, souring ingredient is tamarind but since it takes time and effort to extract the tamarind juice, a lot of busy and working moms (like me!) use powdered souring ingredients found in the supermarket instead. Tastes just as good as it's traditional version! 

This Pork Sinigang Recipe is a family favorite and I've made this so many times for my family and I hope your will enjoy it as much as we do!
