Champorado with Pinipig and Pandan Milk

Champorado with Pinipig and Pandan Milk.  The classic Champorado was a regular breakfast when I was a kid. The chocolate ingredient used was either chocolate tablea or cocoa poder. But today I doubt if most of the present generation kids have ever had champorado for breakfast.

If you search the internet it will return result of Champorado of which are based on few recipes which may have been published by food bloggers when blogging was just starting. Champorado recipes that you could find are version with concoctions of different salty dried fish usually the classic Chanporado with Tuyo. During my search about Champorado I also come across another Jessica Soho video. It is very informative video if for those looking for some variety of Champorado.

Radish Salad with Dried Shrimp

Radish Salad with Dried Shrimp, Ensaladang Labanos with Dried Shrimp. One of the first post of OPC was the Ensaladang Labanos. That was sometime September 2007, it is more than 10 years now. At that time there was no Facebook or at least it was still not available publicly. Friendster was the most popular social networking site at that time. Those who are crazy about Friendster at that time I invite you to make your comments here.

Ok we have to get back to our topic, this site is a Pinoy Food Blog. Ensaladang Labanos with Dried Shrimp is a level up version of our Ensaladang Labanos. The recipe is not new is just that I have not made any post of the recipe. As a true blooded Ilocano I could attest that Ensaladang Labanos with Dried Shrimp was one of the frugal Ilocano dishes that I grew up. It is a salad but salad to most Pinoy is as good as viand. The Pinoy saladalso served as viand to most of us. 

Ok here is how I made my Radish Salad with Dried Shrimp, Ensaladang Labanos with Dried …

Bopis is known as karinderia or turo-turo dish. It is cheap, but it requires a lot of work to prepare and cook. Personally Bopis is one of my favourite dish, I would most likely have it when I eat at karinderia or canteen. I would however advice that always be wary of the cleanliness of the karinderia. Should at any point if in doubt of the sanitary of the place, I would not recommend ordering Bopis.

I have been posed several versions of Bopis, please do check out the following post. If you are looking for something different recipe of your Bopis.
Bopis, Kandingga Vegetarian Bopis Bopis with Pineapple Chicken Bopis

As I have already mentioned above, cooking Bopis requires a lot of work both on preparation and cooking. The Bopis set should be washed thoroughly, pre-boiled and meticulously diced into small pieces. It also requires more than usual aromatic spices to remove the gamy taste of the pork internals.
Here is the recipe of my version of Bopis.

I would really encourage everyone to check the recipe above list. The above Pork Spareribs recipes are definitely worth giving a try if you love pork spareribs.

Making our Pork Spareribs with Pineapple is fairly easy, every one with basic knowledge on Pinoy Cooking can make it. First the pork spareribs were marinated with the Pineapple Syrup from the canned pineapple slices, vinegar, soy sauce, Hoisin sauce, oyster sauce sugar, crushed peppercorns, crushed garlic and bay leaf before braising or stewing.

For the actual pork spareribs I used back ribs cut into 2 inches wide strips. I also used pineapple slice. The intention was for better serving presentation. Of course you can use any randomly cut pork spareribs and pineapple chunks or t…
