Here’s how to cook one of my favorite dishes my way…well…okay, my mom’s way. LOL Learned it from her. :)
First you have to prepare the ingredients.
INGREDIENTS: (good for 3-4 persons)
1/2 Onion minced
5 cloves garlic minced
3 Pechay na tagalog
1 Tablespoon asuete
3 Tablespoon peanut butter.
For asuete: grind in 1/2 cup warm water to get color out.
*You can also replace pork with chicken, if you will use chicken, skip Step 1.
LET’S START COOKING! :D (cooking time: 30 minutes)
First, we have to pressure cooked the meat for 15 minutes. (to make our cooking time shorter)
put meat on pressure cooker and put water on almost same level with the meat. Cover then start heat.
wait for the hissing sound. when you hear it, switch to medium fire then time it for 15minutes.
After 15 minutes, remove from heat
DO NOT OPEN! IT WILL EXPLODE! NO KIDDING! O_O
What mom taught me is to use a fork, then slowly raise the thing in the middle to remove pressure. (see picture above) do not open unless you’re sure there’s no more pressure inside.
Remove meat then set aside broth.
Once that’s done, let’s go to STEP 2:
On medium heat, saute garlic then onion, then add the meat. Mix and cover for 3 minutes so that the flavor of garlic and onion would stick to the meat.
Add broth, mix, then cover and wait for it to boil.
Add pepper and salt to taste.
then add 3 tablespoon of peanut butter, then add asuete. mix everything then cover for 3 -5 minutes. (mix it from time to time)
