Cooking Batchoy ni Tatay (Slow cook recipe)




I've been enjoying Tatay Elmo's special batchoy for years (this was since I was introduced by my then-BF-now-hubby to his family). Tatay's batchoy is one of my hubby's well-loved dishes; which is why I've been having an inkling to learn this dish for such a long while.

And fortunately (for me), I was able to watch Tatay Elmo cook his one-of-a-kind batchoy when they visited the hubby and me in Bangkok.

Finally! I will be able to re-create Tatay's batchoy for the hubby anytime he craves for it.

Here's how.

Ingredients in cooking batchoy:
- garlic, crushed and chopped
- onions, chopped
- tomatoes, chopped

13. When the ingredients are soft and tender, add the pork blood. Stir well.

I used only half a cup of blood for this dish. If you want yours to be richer, 3/4 to a full cup.

14. Let the dish boil once more for 15-20 minutes under medium heat.

15. Add the noodles at this time.

Cooking batchoy only requires several ingredients; but the cooking itself is very elementary. Notice I didn't have to add artificial flavorings or MSG. The Chinese celery and long green chili are enough to give body and flavor to this batchoy recipe.

  3. I could practically smell the pictures hehehe...Sarap! But my version would exclude blood for sure hehehe. I have stopped eating animal blood long, long time ago. But that's just a personal preference. :-)

  4. Very tempting! Apparently, we don't cook this at home and I only get to taste this from Lucky Me. I'm sure nothing beats the real thing and the cumbersome preparation for this dish!
