KBL – Kadyos, Baboy at Langka

KBL – Kadyos, Baboy at Langka
KBL is the acronym for Kadyos, Baboy at Langka the popular Ilongo boiled pork with pigeon peas soured with batwan fruit. I have made a of post related to this dish already (click here) using red bean as a substitute for that not so easy to find pigeon peas and sampalok sinigang mix as an alternative to batwan which is equally hard to find outside Negros.
