So I moved. No, I didn’t move from one house to another but I moved my kitchen. This kitchen.

And it’s like really moving in a new home. It’s nice but it’s kinda freaking me out too.

Man, I think I’m going out of my mind..so bear with me. This is my very first post to this new home.

Uh…welcome? Gosh, I missed you guys.

I am at a lost for words right now. I think I’ve used up all my brain cells.

Pork Sinigang with Strawberry | www.thepeachkitchen.comSinigang is one of my favorite dishes and strawberries, one of my favorite fruits.  I guess I got curious when this dish got popular in Baguio. Kinda an east-meets-west dish,right?


Pork Sinigang with Strawberries

Most people sauté garlic, onions and tomatoes with the meat but I think it only add up to the oil content of the dish. Straight boiling of the meat will taste the same.


  • 500g pork belly, cut into chunks
  • 300g unripe tamarind, boiled and juices squeezed out or a packet of instant tamarind soup base
  • 200g of swamp cabbage leaves {kangkong}
  • 200g okra, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 horse radish, sliced
  • 6 cups water or rice wash
  • 3 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 cups strawberries,halved


  1. Boil pork chunks in a pot with water or rice wash. Simmer for 30 minutes until it becomes tender.
  2. Add the tamarind juices/instant tamarind soup base.Stir.
  3. Add fish sauce and horseradish. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Add okra and starwberries and simmer for another 2 minutes.
  5. Add the Swamp Cabbage and simmer for another 2 minutes.
  6. Serve with steamed rice.

You might be weirded out by the taste because it gives a little sweetness to Pork Sinigang but I kinda liked it.

  8. oh, i hadn’t tried this sinigang w/ strawberries in Baguio. but surely, i’ll enjoy the twist…
    agree with u, sautee-ing the meat with onion, tomatoes, whatevers, will only add oil to the sinigang.

  11. sinigang with strawberries?! wow first time to hear about that. hmmm.. interesting.

  12. Wow what a combination, I love sinigang too but I havent tried this one, how does it taste like? Does the strawberry help at all?

    1. This is really popular in Baguio. Try mo, medyo sweet na maasim..it’s really a nice twist..

  13. Wow!  I have tried frozen strawberries & blueberries in Tom Yum soup, but not sinigang.  It definitely makes sense to do the same with sinigang.  I will definitely try your recipe.  The strawberries will give it a sweet taste and they look pretty!

  14. My sister mentioned this to me a while back. Will try this. Would you recommend unripe strawberries more than ripe or ripening strawberries more? Or is it just the same?
