Kasoy Kare Kare, Pork Hocks
Kasoy Kare Kare, Pork Hocks. I just found out that I still have one bottle of the cashew spread that I brought home from Australia. To make the best out of it I decided to make another Kasoy Kare Kare. This time, I decided to use pork pata/hocks. My Kasoy Kare Kare, Pork Hocks is basically similar to my Kare Kare, Pork Hocks, cooked from scratch, no kare kare mix.

Kasoy Kare Kare, Pork Hocks Dish

Ingredients are similar to my Kasoy Kare Kare, the only difference is that I used pork hocks instead of the oxtail, all other ingredients are the same or similar.

I have not seen any cashew spread in Manila, if any of our readers know where to buy cashew spread in Manila, please share to us. I have not tried using local cashew nut but it is worth trying. Only two things, use unsalted toasted cashew nut instead, I also have not found t roasted cashew not in Manila, the toasted cashew should be ground smooth.
