ILOCANO BATSO with HEBI and PORK BELLY │ Ginisang Upo with Atsuete

Image
ILOCANO BATSO with HEBI and PORK BELLY │ Ginisang Upo with Atsuete This Batso or Bacho is cooked with Hebi or Hibe (semi dried small shrimps). This Ilocano Ginisang Upo recipe is also cooked with diced pork belly. I used annatto seeds that were particularly bought at the wet markets. The seeds are almost black red in color but the annatto water extract is actually blood red. Compared to the orange colored annatto seeds that are sold in the supermarkets. Hebi is actually a cheaper alternative to fresh shrimps. The upo has to be cooked half cooked, do not overcook the vegetables. You do not want a mushy texture. Once the upo start to cook take it out from the heat. Best used annatto water if the seeds are available in your area. Ideally the annatto water is added as soon as the diced upo is added. The annatto besides the nuclear red color, the flavor or aroma of the annatto makes the batso unique because of that nutty flavor. Ingredients: 1 medium size upo, diced, small si

PINOY CHICKEN BARBECUE WITH PEANUT SAUCE and YELLOW RICE │ Luto Hangang Gitna ng Chicken

Image
PINOY CHICKEN BARBECUE WITH PEANUT SAUCE and YELLOW RICE Luto Hangang Gitna ng Chicken Simple and Easy Pinoy Chicken BBQ with Yellow Fried Rice - Java Rice and Peanut Sauce. This Chicken Barbeque is for the Christmas and New Year Holidays. It is made quick and simple by grilling the chicken in grill plate, therefore you can do it indoors. The chickens are also braised or pre-cooked, this will eliminate uncooked middle or inner portion of the chicken usually common on chicken barbecue. The base of the peanut sauce is the remaining sauce from braising the chicken, therefore be careful in adding salt and soy sauce on the marinating mixture. Too much kalamansi on the marinating mixture will also result over sourly peanut sauce. The yellow or java rice made yellow by the annatto oil and the turmeric powder, we want a yellow rice so watch out for the quantity of the annatto oil, we do not want also  too much of the turmeric  flavore on the yellow rice. Ingredients: Chicken BBQ: 1 kilo chicke
