Sinigang na Buntot ng Baboy

Sinigang na Buntot ng Baboy

Weekends are for Sinigang! And when it comes to Sinigang, our favorite is Sinigang na Buntot ng Baboy wherein we use the pig’s tail. This is what we had for Sunday lunch as requested by everybody — Daddydoodledoo, Ykaie, and Twinkle.

If you’re gonna ask me why pig tail is our favorite part to cook into sinigang. Well, I think it has the complete balance of skin, fat, meat, and bones making our soup more flavorful. When it’s melt-in-your-mouth tender, the pork tail adds a delightful collagenous element to the soup, making it incredibly satisfying.

A Dish for All Seasons

Sinigang is often considered a rainy day comfort food. The hot, sour broth cuts through the chill and leaves you feeling warm and satisfied. But don’t be fooled! Sinigang na Buntot ng Baboy is just as enjoyable on a sunny day like the ones that we have these days. The tanginess is surprisingly refreshing, making it a perfect choice to beat the heat.

What’s your family’s comfort food?
