Paksiw na Pata

Paksiw is one of the traditional way of Filipino cooking. This is a method of cooking where in vinegar is an essential ingredient.


the ingredients:

1 pork's leg, chopped into 2-inch thick
6 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 cups water
salt & pepper to taste
1 cup banana blossoms (optional)

here's how:

On a casserole, place all the ingredients except for the banana blossoms.
Bring to boil.
Lower down the heat to medium high, simmer until the pork is tender.
Add the banana blossoms, continue simmering until cooked.

Tip from my Inay...

When buying pork's leg, ask for the front leg, this has more meat than the back.
