Paksiw na Pata Recipe

As usual, you don’t have to worry about anything because all of the ingredients we’ll need for this recipe can be easily bought from local markets and nearby grocery stores. Of course, the fresher our ingredients are, the better! Also, the preparations and cooking procedures are detailed and easy to follow, so I’m sure you won’t have a hard time cooking an amazing Paksiw na Pata dish! 

Before we begin, let us first go over the list of ingredients. Of course, we’ll be needing “pata” or pork legs, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, chili, bay leaf, onion, garlic, water, and our special ingredient, banana shoots or “puso ng saging”. The spiciness depends on your preferred level, so feel free to add more chilies as you please! 

Now that we’re all set, let’s start! First, simply wash the pork legs thoroughly and get rid of excess debris and dirt. Once you’ve done that, just set the pork legs aside for a while as you prepare the other ingredients. Next, wash and slice the banana shoots, onion, garlic, and chilies. Then, prepare a clean medium pot and proceed to boil the pork legs together with the banana shoots, onions, garlic, water, vinegar, chilies, sugar, salt, pepper, and bay leaves. Cover the mixture and let it boil for about 45 minutes. Make sure to stir it from time to time so the meat gets evenly cooked and the rich flavors become distributed, okay? 

Once the meat is soft and tender, it means that it’s already cooked! Serve this appetizing dish with a cup of steamed rice and ice-cold soft drinks. I assure you that it’s gonna be an amazing experience! 


And voila! That was easy, right? I’m sure that you didn’t even break a sweat while preparing this delicious dish. As I said, it’s a perfect dish for lunch and dinner because it really goes best with freshly cooked rice. Oh, and it also has a nice kick of spice for all our spicy lovers out there.
