BEST PORK ESTOFADO RECIPE

Jan Paula Plamenco     8/17/2015  No comments

Pork Estofado is made up of pork stewed in soy sauce and vinegar, mixed with saging na saba ( plantains - a type of banana used in many savory dishes) that adds sweetness and really makes the dish more appetizing. Others add carrots and potatoes. Others used to fry the plantains first but I don't prefer doing that because for me, it'll just ruin the true flavor of the banana.

This dish might sound Spanish but this is an original Filipino dish. It was just given a Spanish name and the word "estofado" means stewed or pot-roasted. This is actually similar to Adobo.

So, let's get down to it and I'm sure you'll love the idea of having plantains in some of your dishes.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 kilo pork, cubed 
  • 3 pieces dried bay leaves 
  • 1 tablespoon whole peppercorn 
  • 4-5 plantain, sliced diagonally into 1 inch 
  • 1/2 cup vinegar

COOKING PROCEDURES: 


1. Saute garlic in a cooking pot until it turns golden brown. 

2. Add the pork and cook for 10 minutes over low heat. 

3. Put-in soy sauce, water, dried bay leaves, whole peppercorns and vinegar then bring to a boil. Simmer for 30 minutes or until meat is tender. (DO NOT STIR BECAUSE THE VINEGAR WILL HAVE A "RAW" TASTE. MAKE SURE YOU'RE COOKING OVER VERY LOW HEAT.) 

4. Add sugar, all in one seasoning granules and bananas then simmer for 10 more minutes. 

ENJOY!!
