Paksiw na Pata ng Baboy. Pork leg is cooked in vinegar and soy sauce, it is basically similar to cooking adobo or humba except that dried banana blossoms are added. I want it sweet as well so a table spoon of sugar was also added.

  1. Just like humba. looks so good!

  2. I love all these food! Yum-O! I didnt know you were in Abu Dhabi. Do you have a filipino restaurant there? Im going to Abu Dhabi on October 11. If you dont have a restaurant, I think its about time! :-))))

  3. Hi Leya Sun,
    I wish I had but I did not have enough resources.

  4. Give me this and a gigantic platter of steaming white rice and I will be in hog heaven!!! My mom used to make this (she still does, but she can't unfortunately FedEx it to me), I haven't eaten it in 4 years but it is quite an experience and I'll always look forward into sinking my teeth into these. I wish I can find banana blossoms here, I've recently discovered patas in a Chinese-owned grocery store so I think I can make this. Beautiful photo ut-man! Thank you for sharing it.

  5. I myself have also not eaten the dish for quite sometime, I hope you can find the banana blossoms otherwise you have to cook it without the blossoms. Thanks Chowhound.

  6. is banana blossom important in the dish?

  7. It is but you can also cook the dish with out it.Try to find them on the Asian section of your favorite supermarket.

  8. oh I love this! But unfortunately cannot find any banana blossoms here as well. Is there something you can substitute with? thanks!

  9. You can use dried lily blossoms instead of banana blossoms. Pictured on the dish are DLB. And if you have time, tie a loose knot on each one. My cooked this dish, when I was young. Now I cook it.
