Pork Humba with Pineapple

Pork Humba with Pineapple is not new, in fact there are a lot of humba with pineapple recipes in the net. Today I want to share my version of pork humba with pineapple. Ingredients for these recipes are readily available in most supermarkets if you are overseas, except perhaps the fermented black beans or tausi but it is usually available in most Asian store if there is one in your location.

My version of pork humba with pineapple is basically the same with my previous humba recipes and adobo recipes on the archives, the only difference is the addition of pineapple, just click the links below to see those previous humba dish and some of adobo dish post.

Beef and Capsicum Stirfry, Beef and Bell Pepper Stirfry

Beef and Capsicum Stirfry, Beef and Bell Pepper Stirfry. Here is a quick colorful beef dish that that fairly easy to make. It is best served with rice and sometimes over noodles. I would suggest use a good cut of beef, use tenderloin if you have the budget otherwise use sirloin. For this recipe I used sirloin steaks. For the bell pepper for a colorfull appeal I have used the combination of green, red and yellow variety. To make the dish the beef cut into thin strips is marinated with some soy sauce, some sugar and corn flour. The beef should be stir cook separately in batches from the vegies before finally stir cook together for to blend the flavors. The cooking method is basically the same with my other stirfry recipe below should you are looking for other stirfry recipes.

Fish with Black Bean Sauce Stirfry

Fish with Black Bean Sauce Stirfry is one of my favorite fish stirfry dish. There are countless variations of this fish stirfry dish which depends on available ingredients. In fact I have on the archives a similar fish stirfry dishFish and Tofu with Tausi, as the name suggest I used fermented black beans instead of black bean sauce, I also added some fried tofu as an extender and for added variety. You may use any white fish fillet, for best result use a firm fish fillet. Cooking is a bit complicated because it involves combinations of cooking process. Firstly the fish pieces coated with cornstarch are deep fried or at least fried so the cornstarch will seal in the juices of the fish. The vegetables are also stir cook separately for best results. Here is the recipe of another version of my Fish with Black Bean Sauce Stirfry.


1 kilo white fish fillet, cut into serving pieces
1/4 cup black bean sauce
1/4 cup oyster sauce
2 tbsp. cup hoisin sauce

Grilled Pork Chop Pinoy Barbecue Style

Grilled Pork Chop Pinoy Barbecue Style. The marinade of Pinoy style barbecue uses fizzy soda drink either sprite or 7Up mixed with soy sauce, some sugar and a lot of garlic. The not so secret ingredient is the banana ketchup which add sweetness to the meat. The dye from the banana ketchup makes the meat reddish. Barbecue to most Pinoy is associated to the Street FoodPork BBQ, in skewers. Pinoy just love it, is so common and available no matter where you belong in the Filipino society, from the not so hygienic street food peddlers to the food courts and fastfood chains and to the more expensive specialty restaurants served with the equally popular Pinoy Java rice.

Chicken Sarciado, Sarciadong Manok, Kinamatisang Manok

Chicken Sarciado, Sarciadong Manok, Kinamatisang Manok. Not long ago I made a similar Pinoy dish using pork called Sarciadong Baboy or Kinamatisang Baboy. That was an innovative recipe although some of you may have heard, tasted or even cooked a similar dish, it is innovative because I have made the recipe from scratch base on my colleague throw everything in the pot cooking method.

That dish was a winner, it did came out really delicious just for the information of those who have not tried the recipe. Today I cooked a chicken version which came out equally great or even better. Cooking the dish is basically similar with the pork version.

Special Pork Kaldereta

Special Pork Kaldereta is my second post of the pork version of kaldereta. For this version I planned to use pork ribs similar to the cut sold locally in Manila but it was not available here, instead I used the combination of pork back ribs and pork rasher. Being special kaldereta version I also have added a couple or so ingredients. I added a small can of pineapple slices cut to pieces, added the syrup to the stewing broth. Added some slices of sweet pickled dill or cucumber in addition to the sweet pickled relish. Some pitted green olives and some peanut butter was also used.

This kaldereta version is made from scratch, instead of using liver spread I used pork liver. To prepare the liver I first boiled until the liver become firm. Then cut into thin strips before finely diced and finally mashed smooth. You may use pestle and mortar if required to attain a smooth liver paste. The liver paste was then sautéed with the garlic and onion.

Aside from the above, cooking is basically the s…
