Haha I wish we did…and thank you so much for all your compliments :) I hope you had a good thanksgiving!
Hi :) I would love to have my own restaurant one day in the future, but as of now I just cook from home…no restaurant yet hahah
Pinakbet Kapampangan- This is my version of the classic Pinakbet, cooked the Pampango way…meaning it was sauteed in lots of Bagoong Alamang hahah. I like to keep things simple when making this dish, so the only vegetables I used were Squash, String Beans, Eggplant, and Tomato. Lastly, just to give it that Manyaman bite every Pinakbet dish needs, I topped it with some fried pork and lots of sauteed shrimp.
Pandesal Corned Beef Sliders-Like 90% of Filipino Households, Corned Beef has always been a staple canned food in our house hahah. I do admit, I’m not a huge fan of canned meats, but from time to time, I like to saute the corned beef in lots of onion, garlic, and tomato, then use it as a filling for buttered Pandesal, or simply eat it with steamed white rice :)
Sisig Kapampangan- Once again, I am proud to say that this Manyaman Filipino Favorite originated in Pampanga :) Thanks to Aling Lucing of Angeles, Pampanga-Dakal a Salamat Pu! I’ll be honest, cooking sisig is definitely NOT an easy dish to cook…there are several specific cooking processes that go into it, and if even one of these cooking processes are not executed properly, the whole dish could go wrong. Thankfully, my sisig came out successfully, and more importantly, it came out Manyaman! The only thing that was missing was a case of San Miguel Beer hahah
Pancit Palabok (Pancit Luglug)-I don’t mean to be bias, but my mom’s Pancit Palabok is honestly the most Manyaman Pancit Palabok I’ve tasted IN MY LIFE. This is one of those recipes that only very few people in my family know, and fortunately, I am one of those few people :) Even though I can’t share what goes into this Amazing pancit sauce, I will say that it takes a lot of time, and a lot of ingredients to make. As the saying goes “Sauce pa lang, ulam na!” Meaning it’s all in the sauce!
Thank you Czarina!! :) I’m glad you like my blog
Pochero-This is yet another manyaman Filipino stew made up of slow cooked tomatoes, plantain bananas, string beans, bok choy & cabbage. I used a combination of pork and chicken in this dish, but beef can also be used. The funny thing about this dish is I first heard about it on the popular Filipino Teleserye “Mara Clara” last year hahah. As you can see, I easily get inspired to cook by many different things I see on a day to day basis, even Filipino soap operas :)
Filipino Beef Steak (Bistek)-In Pampango, we call this “Bisteg”, and it’s always been one of my favorite Beef dishes. I like to use lots of Calamansi when marinating the meat (I’m talking about A LOT of Calamansi). This really gives the dish that unique , truly Filipino, citrusy flavor :)
