Everybody loves a good crunch in every bite! This way of cooking has been the most favored and loved. To get the perfect crispy pata, you need to fry it and leave it in the oil until it turns golden brown. But wait! Let’s double fry to make it extra crispy. Place it on a bed of paper towels to drain off any excess fat before serving. Pair it with a good dipping sauce or simply a mixture of vinegar with lots of onions.
Who doesn’t love a good soup? This recipe will surely give you that warm and hearthy food happiness. Bulalo is usually cooked with beef shanks but you can also use pork. In a large pot, boil the pata and cook it until it’s tender. Add some salt, pepper, garlic, and onions to add flavor. Simmer for at least an hour or two until the pork meat starts to fall off the bones. Serve with hot white rice and you’re good to go. Perfect for gloomy weather or even on a normal day.
Nothing beats a blend of savory and sweet! Patatim is a dish that is cooked to perfection. Different cuisines have their own version of cooking this dish but to make it simple, all you need is to prepare your Pork Pata, seasonings like soy sauce, sesame oil, cooking wine is optional, and water. Then mix it all together in a pot and let the pork simmer on low heat for at least an hour until the pork meat is tender. Once done, add sugar, or pineapple juice to make it sweet or if you prefer savory, add more soy sauce, and you can also add banana blossom for that extra flavor.
