Sinigang na Baboy
As of now (June 16, 2012), the Tropical Storm “Butchoy” is in the Philippines, and according to the weather department of PAG-ASA this will bring rains to Metro Manila until the following days.
This rains will bring coldness in the atmosphere and aside from sleeping,one of the best thing to do is to sip a warm soup to ease the coldness. Isn’t it amazing that you are eating with warm soup on the side after a very long and tiring day?
Lately, it has been raining everyday and the cool breeze of the Christmas added freezing feelings. What can make us comfortable is a steaming hot soup and one of the most popular Filipino viand to warm us up is Sinigang.
Sinigang is a stew characterized with sour flavor. Way back the old ages, fruits like tamarind, kamias, and citrus are used to add sour taste to the soup. But today’s generation and probably, due to high demands, pack mixes has been created.
This post will concentrate on Pork (baboy) as the main ingredient. This is called “Sinigang na Baboy.” When I was working in a BPO company I used to look for this stew to energize me and keep me going. That time, before going home from a sleepless and let us all say stressful work, I will go to the nearest karinderya (sidewalk canteen) and will buy sinigang to chow down before sleeping.
Now, I have the freedom to make this as I’m the one in charge of cooking our dinner everyday.
