Ginataang Pusit at Baboy
Ginataang Pusit at Baboy. To keep up to my promise to try to regularly post, today I have taken an extra effort by sharing an OPC original and innovative dish Ginataang Pusit at Baboy. The truth was I have planned for Adobong Pusit at Baboy, however I could not source the right type of squid. All that was available at the supermarket was large squid tubes. Well the squid adobo could wait for future post.

Ginataang Squid and Pork

Ginataang pusit is a common fare to most Pinoy who love seafood and ginataang food. Most at the time we try to stick to the traditional cooking we have grown to. With today’s post I have combined two separate guinataang dish into one. As expected the flavours of the two delicious dish was infused into one great dish.

Squid and Pork in Coconut Milk

To cook Ginataang Pusit at Baboy the pork has to be cooked first until tender before adding the squid. The squid would only require short cooking time to retain its tenderness. For this recipe I have used canned coconut cream since fresh coconut milk is not available here. Now if you have access to fresh coconut milk then I would recommend use fresh. For the squid any type would do in fact the type that we usually use for Adobong Pusit would be the best. Here is the recipe of OPC’s original and innovative Ginataang Pusit at Baboy.


1 1/2 kilo large squid tube, cut into 3/4” rings
1 kilo pork, cut to adobo size
2 medium size onion, peeled, chopped
1/2 head garlic, peeled, chopped
3 thumb size ginger, skinned, cut into thin strips
2-3 green/red long chili, sliced diagonally
1 1/2 canned coconut cream
1/2 cup bagoong alamang, salted shrimp paste
1-2 stalk lemongrass, trimmed, founded, tied into a knot
cooking oil

Cooking procedure:

Ginataang Pusit at Baboy - Cooking Procedure

In a large sauce pan sauté garlic, ginger and onion. Add in the pork, lemongrass and half of the bagoong alamang, stir cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Now add in 1 can of the coconut cream and about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes stirring occasionally, or until the liquid is reduced to almost dry to an oily sauce and the pork are tender.
