Over the weekend, I went to a local market to buy some ingredient for my “ “Pakbet”, a popular Ilocano (Filipino) dish. Honestly, I’m not a good cook but my wife is better than me in the Kitchen.

For the first time, I was able to cook this famous dish and thanks to Youtube and Kitchen Essential Blog as my reference .  Here are the ingredients :

¼ kg. pork with fat
¼ of small squash (peeled and sliced thinly)
5 pcs. okra (cut crosswise)
5 native bitter melons (cut into quarters)
5 native eggplants (cut to quarters)
6 pcs. string beans (cut into 2 inches long)
2 pcs. tomatoes (sliced thinly)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
1 medium onion (sliced thinly)
small piece of ginger (sliced thinly)
2 tbsps. shrimp paste
cooking oil
3/4 cup water


In a pan fry , heat oil then fry the pork until crunchy and then remove pork set aside. Use the same pan, saute onion, garlic, ginger until golden brown . Add tomatoes and Shrimp paste. Then add in all the vegetables and water . Cook until vegetables are done. Remember not to overcook the veggies. Add Salt and pepper to taste and the pork.
