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!
