Paksiw na Pata – Pinoy Food Recipe

This Pinoy food recipe is also called Braised Pork Leg. Paksiw and Adobo have their similarities when it comes to taste. They both use the same ingredients on cooking. The Paksiw however is a little bit sourer than Adobo. This Pinoy food recipe is for you who want to have something to do with your Pork leg in your refrigerator. We seldom use this part of pork because it’s unusual. But with this Pinoy food recipe, it’ll be worth cooking. Below is the recipe for this amazing Pinoy food.

• 1 large pork leg (pata), sliced
• 2 cups vinegar
• 4 tablespoons soy sauce
• 2 cups water
• 1 head garlic, minced
• 1 piece laurel leaf
• 12 whole peppercorns
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 1 cup dried banana blossom (actually dried lily buds)
• sprigs of dried oregano
• salt to taste
• MSG or vetsin (optional)

1. Place the pork leg pieces in a casserole together with the vinegar, water, garlic, peppercorns, laurel and oregano.
2. Place casserole over medium heat and simmer for 1 hour or until tender. (Alternatively, you can also pressure cook for 15 minutes)
3. Add the soy sauce, sugar and banana flower and continue simmering until the sweet-sour broth thickens.
4. Add salt and MSG to taste, if desired.
5. Serve hot with rice.

We seldom use MSG to taste our food. But it’s up to you if you want to use it. We usually use Magic Sarap to taste our food. And you know that Magic Sarap sometimes makes our Pinoy food recipes tastier than usual.
