Pork Kilawin

Another recipe I've learned form my Inay.

Sauteed Pork in Vinegar with Radish

This dish is commonly known in Batangas as Kilawin.
Kilawin or Kinilaw means to cook in vinegar. The difference is that in preparation of Kinilaw, there is no heat involve. The pork is cured in vinegar until it came to the texture that it has been cooked.


the ingredients:

1 kl pork, cut into 1 inch strips

3 medium size labanos (radish), sliced into 1/4 inch thick

1 large onion, sliced

6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3/4 cup vinegar
3 cups water
cooking oil
salt & pepper to taste

spring onions (optional)

here's how:

On a casserole, saute garlic & onion. Add the pork, sprinkle with some salt. Stir well until the pork turns to light brown. Add water. Season with salt & pepper, then simmer until the pork is done. Add the labanos, continue simmering until the labanos is almost cooked. Pour in the vinegar. Stir well, then bring to boil. Top with spring onions. Serve hot with steamed rice.


You can adjust the amount of seasonings depending on your taste.
