At dahil maulan ng konti, I figured it’s time to cook Kinamatisang Baboy. It’s a simple but flavorful Filipino pork soup made with pork, tomatoes, and bok choy.
To make this dish, I used a combination of pork ribs and liempo to make it more flavorful. You can use just pork ribs or just pork liempo, it’s really up to you which pork part you prefer. You can even use pork kasim.
All you need to do is sauté the garlic, onions, tomatoes, and pork. Then simmer it until it becomes all tender and flavorful. Season with patis and pepper then add the pechay/bok choy. Voila! it’s done! Super easy to cook, right? and has minimal ingredients too.
