Nilagang Baboy with Mais

I love sweet corn on my nilaga, I normally add it on beef nilaga, click the link Cebu Pochero, Nilagang Oxtail, Nilagang Baka with Lotus Root, to see the nilaga with sweet corn dishes on the archives. This is the first time I tried to add sweet corn to nilagang baboy

The resultant dish did really turn very good, the sweet corn on cobs in my nilagang baboy did make the difference. If you want to try the dish here is the recipe of my Nilagang Baboy with Sweet Corn.
