I am joining Clarissa on this "Food Trip Friday" meme for a reason that I want to challenge myself to try something new food at least once a week in order for me to learn to cook.
When I was still in the Philippines, one of the least things that I would try is cooking. Just why? I can't handle criticism. He-he-he! But the irony is, I love eating and I know how some foods supposed to taste. Few weeks after I arrived here in Michigan, I started to craved my favorite Filipino dishes. My best friend, Ann, whom I chat to almost every night, suggested to me to try to cook "Humba". It's one of my favorite. She gave me the recipe and instructions. I tried it. To my surprise, it did good. I did good! I can't believe it.
1/2 kilo pork belly
1/3 cup Datu Puti vinegar
1/4 cup Silver Swan soy sauce
1/4 cup. sugar
1/2 cup water
3 stalks of spring onions
HOW: place all the ingredients in a pot and bring to boil. Once boiling, set to low for 20-30 mins.tips: I love to add some hard boiled eggs in it, shelled it and put it in 5 minutes before the Humba is done.
