RECIPE: Tokwa't Baboy

It's been raining and flooding like crazy for almost a week now that today's ray of sunshine made everyone happy including me. Of course I enjoyed the monggo, the nilaga, the sopas, the sinigang, etc during the rainy days but I'm craving for something different tonight, something I haven't cooked for ages and something to cheer us up at home as we finally bid goodbye to Maring (typhoon Trami).



Ingredients:

4 pcs tokwa or 1 block of tofu, cut into cubes
1/4 pork cubes (I used liempo cut into bite-size pieces)
oil
wansoy or kinchay, minced
1 medium onion, sliced
half clove garlic
ground pepper
salt
small piece of ginger, julienned
Knorr Liquid Seasoning (original)
Mama Sita's  Oyster Sauce
Golden Sail Chinese Cooking Wine
green chili pepper (optional)


Fry the tokwa or tofu cubes in oil until golden brown. Salt-rub the pork and then fry in a little bit of oil until golden brown and crunchy. Cook ginger and garlic, toss in the tokwa and pork and add seasonings and onions. Add the wansoy or kinchay before removing from pan. Bon appetit!

  2. sis, you can also use pork face/ears but it takes a longer time to cook since you have to boil it pa :)

    1. Is it ok to boil and grill the pork? Para hindi na igisa

    2. Ok din to boil and grill. Actually, marami naman versions and pagluluto ng tokwa't baboy. Yun version ko is more on pang-ulam since it has sauce. :)

    1. Hi, sis. Actually you can skip the cooking wine. I just saw it sa shelf when I made the tokwa't baboy. I have a friend who tweaked my recipe and used atsuete oil so reddish ang color ng dish :)

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.
