Pork Sinigang or Sinigang na Baboy

One popular soup in the Philippines is Sinigang. There are variations to this soup, one of that is Pork Sinigang or Sinigang na Baboy.  Today, I will show you how easy it is to cook this comfort food. I suggest to buy pork that has fat with skin in  it like the liempo or pork belly. Boil the pork until it’s tender. This is the only soup that I love eating the fat of the liempo. It’s just so yummy that it felt like it melts in your mouth. That might sound disgusting to you, try it and maybe you will agree with me. Let me know in the comments, if you agree or disagree.

If you are new to this dish, from what I know and heard, My American friends and specifically my American Uncle who is married to my Aunt, like this soup. With that, I hope somehow I was able to comfort you to try this dish.
