Menu of the Day
I cooked for lunch today this Kare-kareng Pata ( Pork Hind in Peanut Sauce ) and here's the preparation.
* 1/2 kilo pork hind sliced * 1 medium pc. onion * 2 cloves garlic * salt to taste * 1 pack McCormick peanut sauce mix * 400 grams banana heart, quartered * 100 grams string beans, cut into 5cm. length * 2 medium size eggplants, cut diagonally * 250 grams pechay (chinese cabbage)
Boil pork hind and cook until meat is tender. Add peanut sauce mix and banana heart and bring to boiling point while stirring continously until the sauce reaches a thick but flowing consistency. Put onion, garlic and salt according to taste. Add eggplants, string beans and pechay. Cook for further 5 minutes. Serve hot. Arrange on a large serving platter surround with vegetables and top with the thick sauce. You can serve with a side dish of sauteed shrimp paste but for this menu i choose to adjust the taste so that there is no need to ingest more salt which is not good for health.
