Pork shanks and hocks are my mom's favorite part. These are best parts for sinigang (pork in sour broth). Here's another dish that we also love to have during dinner.
- 1 kg pork shanks and hocks chopped.
- 200 g mung beans
- 2 tomatoes, quartered
- 2 medium sized onion, quartered
- 1 bulb garlic, chopped
- 2 inches ginger, chopped
- 2 pork bouillon cubes
- salt and pepper
- Place the pork with 1000 ml water in pressure cooker. Cook for at least one hour.
- Meanwhile, cook mung beans in a boiling water for 30-45 minutes.
- Drain mung beans to eliminate excess water.
- Saute onion, garlic, ginger and tomatoes in a large pot.
- Add the mung beans.
- Add the bouillon cubes and stir until cubes break down.
- Now pour pork broth into the pot, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.
- Add the pork and keep it cooking for 5-10 minutes, then it will be ready to serve. If you want it soupy, just add a little bit more water and adjust the taste by adding more salt and pepper.
