Characterized by its sour taste and savory flavor, Pork Sinigang or commonly known in Filipino as sinigang na baboy, is one of the most convenient Filipino recipes of all time. It is considered as one of the most popular viands in the Philippines. Although several ingredients can be used in sinigang, this specific soup dish uses pork as the main ingredient. Bony meats are preferred for this dish.

As far as souring agents, several ingredients can be used. The most common souring ingredients used is tamarind. Other fruits such as guava, kamyas, balimbing are also used as souring agents. Of course, that all depends on the availability of these ingredients in your area. For this specific pork sinigang, I used the tamarind seasoning mix by Mama Sita’s.

Enjoy the sinigang recipe.
