Pininyahang manok, first of all is a Filipino style recipe usually served in social gatherings in the Philippines. This simple home cooking recipe is easy. Cooking pininyahang baboy on the other hand, is just as doable. While using the right ingredients, you can never go wrong cooking pininyahang baboy. If you're familiar in cooking pininyahang manok, we only replace chicken with pork and all the other ingredients remain in cooking pininyahang baboy.
Cooking pininyahang baboy takes 30-45 minutes cooking time, including preparation of all the cooking ingredients.
Ingredients in cooking pininyahang baboy:
-Pork, preferably lean, cut into cubes or bite-sized
-Hotdogs, cut into small pieces (I use Purefoods' tender juicy hotdogs in cooking pininyahang baboy or manok)
-Pineapple chunks, cut into small pieces
-Green bell peppers, cut
- Evaporated milk
-Fish sauce, to taste
Let's start cooking pininyahang baboy:
1. Put in the cooking oil in a very hot pan.
2. Put some of the crushed garlic.
When I saute', I use a bit of Star Margarine Garlic flavor. It adds a stronger garlic-y taste and aroma to the dish. (I didn't include it in the ingredients because it's only optional.)
3. Add the pork when the garlic turns golden. Scoop out the juices that will come out from the pork.
4. Fry the pork until cooked or slightly golden. Season the pork with fish sauce and pepper. Set aside for later.
5. In the same pan, saute' the remaining garlic.
6. When the garlic turns golden brown, add the onions.
7. Add in the carrots and green peppers. Mix well.
8. Add the cooked pork, hotdogs and pineapple chunks. Mix well.
9. Turn the stove to a medium heat and let it simmer.
10. Add the pineapple syrup and cheese. Mix well.
11. Pour the evaporated milk.
12. Add fish sauce and pepper to taste.
13. Let it boil under low heat to allow the flavors to blend.
14. Serve hot with rice. Brown rice goes well with this dish, especially if you're watching your blood sugar level.
