ALLTIME FAVORITE FILIPINO RECIPES…


I’ve put together what I consider to be a short list of the most popular and most asked for Filipino foods (asked for and demanded by my family)… I should mention that this list is no way in any particular order and if you enjoy Filipino food just as we do, It may be that your favorite dish did not make the list, but doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be there…
If you would like the recipes for any dish in the following list, just let me know and I’ll go ahead and post it in forum.
I truly hope you enjoy making and tasting the following…

PORK MENUDO


KARE KARE


PORK ADOBO


MAHA BLANCO


PUTO


CHICKEN APRETADA (I’ve been promised the recipe)


LECHON KAWALI


SINIGANG NA BANGUS (MILK FISH SOUP)


CRISPY PATA


PANCIT CANTON






I see several dishes "missing" from your list: Lumpia (first and foremost!) Lechon baboy, Bibingka!

And what is the difference between Pancit Canton that you named and the Pancit Bihon I'm familiar with?

Okay, let me explain some things before everyone runs out to find Pilipino food. There is no such thing as Authentic Pilipines Cuisine, because every Pinoy and Pinay cook has a different recipe for the same dish handed down from generation to generation, or the same recipe for different dishes. There are also three distinct influences on Pilipino cuisine other than the aboriginal; the Spanish, the Chinese, and the Indian. I have enjoyed some wonderful Pilipino curries among my gastronomic adventures.

Case in point: You said you are looking for a recipe for Sisig? Now please describe what you consider that to be, because I have seen sisig described as pig ears, which I know as kilawin, and I have in turn seen kilawin described as a ceviche style fish or pork dish.

There are several types of Pancit as well. There is pancit bihon, made with rice noodles, pancit canton, made with chinese style wheat noodles, and my personal favorite, pancit palabok, a.k.a pancit luglug, a.k.a. pancit luglug palabok, made with rice noodles, hard boiled eggs (not balut!), a shrimp based sauce coloured with annatto, and sprinkled with crushed pork rinds called dinipa. I was taught to make pancit bihon and canton with sauteed cabbage, pork, and chicken livers. I was taught to make kari kari with oxtail, cabbage, and long green beans. I was taught to make adobo with chicken and pork togehter, not separately, and the chicken and pork are browned first, then braised in a seasoned vinegar/soy sauce mixture, while other Pilipinos will tell you that the meat should be braised first, then browned, and yet others will tell you not to brown it at all, just braise it.

That being said, I will give you some of my Pilipino recipes, one post at a time, alphabetically down my extensive multi-national recipe list. To some they will be authentic, to some they will not, be they are what I was taught to make, the way I was taught to make it.

Here is one of the staples of the Orient. I think every Asian cuisine includes two basic recipes. Cashew chicken, and

BEEF BROCCOLI

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb thinly sliced flank steak
  • 1 Tbs Rice wine
  • 1 Tbs Cornstarch
  • 3 to 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 bunch green onions or scallions, chopped
  • 1 Lb Broccoli cut into florets
  • 2 Tbs Patis (fish sauce)
  • 1 Tbs Soy sauce
  • 2 Tbs Water
  • 4 Tbs cooking oil
  • 1 tsp grated ginger root
  • 1/3 c Water

Sauce:
  • 1 tb Soy sauce
  • 1 tb Cornstarch

Directions:

Dissolve the cornstarch in the 2 Tbs water, then add rice wine and soy sauce,. Marinate the beef in this mixture for at least 1 hour.

In a wok or large skillet, stir fry the marinated beef in 2 Tbs cooking oil until just barely browned. Do not overcook. Remove the beef from the skillet and put aside. Wipe out the wok and return to heat. Add another 2 Tbs cooking oil and heat. Add the garlic, onion, fish sauce, and ginger and allow to cook for 1 minute. Add the broccoli and stir fry for another minute, then add the 1/3 cup water, cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Combine the soy sauce and cornstarch to make a sauce. Remove the cover, and add the beef and the sauce, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until the sauce thickens and the beef and broccoli are fully cooked.

LECHON
Ingredients:
  • 5 to 7 pound pork butt
Rub:
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper
  • 3 Tbs peanut oil
  • 3 Tbs soy sauce
Sauce:
  • 1 4-ounce can liver pate
  • ½ cup vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbs cooking oil
  • 1 Tbs minced garlic
  • 2 Tbs finely chopped onion
Directions:

Preheat oven to 500F, or as high as your oven goes. Mix the rub ingredients and rub into pork. Place pork in a roasting pan on a rack. Roast pork in 500F oven for 30 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350F and continue to cook for approximately 45 minutes per pound, but use a meat thermometer. The roast is done when the internal temperature reaches 145F. Allow the roast to rest, covered with aluminum foil, while you make the lechon sauce.

Mix liver pate, vinegar, water, sugar, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. In a small saucepan, heat oil and sauté onion until transparent. Add garlic and cook until browned. Add liver mixture. Bring to a boil and simmer until sauce thickens. Use the sauce as a dipping sauce, or as gravy, depending on your taste.

We put pork and shrimp in Lumpia. along with shredded carrots, cabbage and onions.

Also, imho, there are no Empanadas quite as delicious as Filipino Empanadas.
