Humba Recipe

Have you ever heard of Filipino recipe called Humba?It is a braised pork belly and one of the comfort foods in the Philippines. It's popular Filipino dish in places like mindanao and in visayas regions. Some places in Luzon island have also known humba but i don't what they call it exactly. Humba is one of the dishes that we can always see in the table during Philippine fiestas and any other occassions. For thos who want to try cook Humba, here is the exact ingredients and cooking procedures from del monte page.

Ingredients :
1 kilo Pork Pigue (Pork Ham), cut to serving pieces4 cloves garlic, minced1 cup water2 tablespoons brown sugar1 teaspoon salt1/2 cup vinegar1 sprig of oregano1 bay leaf2 Star Anise (optional but I love the star anise twist to the Humba flavor)1 teaspoon pepper corn
3 tablespoons tausi or salted black beans
1/2 cup of banana blossoms (for a nice decorative touch)

1. Sear the pork cubes in the pan until the sugar has caramelized with the pork. Add garlic and black beans and mix well.
2. Add the remaining ingredients (like vinegar, soy sauce, oregano, bay leaf, and salt ) except banana blossoms together until the pork is tender. It may take 30 minutes or so to make the pork tender so just add a little more water when sauce appears to dry up.
3. Halfway through the cooking, add banana blossoms and continue cooking until tender.
4. Arrange on a platter. Serve hot.

Enjoy cooking!
