RECIPE: TKG's Pork Nilaga

Sometimes, one needs to be creative when it comes to cooking nilaga (same with sinigang, menudo and adobo) because this is a typical Filipino dish. However, there is the "sawa" and "umay" factor if one will stick to the same ingredients over and over again.






So here's my variation (I have tons of nilaga variations) :

Ingredients:

pork legs
1 bunch leek
ground whole peppercorn
salt to taste
patis or fish sauce to taste
bokchoy or taiwanese pechay


Boil the meat. Add the leeks after 10-15mins when the meat is almost tender. Wait for another 5 minutes before adding up peppercorns, salt  and patis. Add the bokchoy when the meat is very tender and is ready to be served.

Happy eating!

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood. 

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!
