Chicken Humba

Humba is another classic Filipino dish. It is quiet similar with adobo but it has some variations in the ingredients. This is usually cooked with pork but I wanted to try it with chicken.

Hello everyone! First of all I would like to say thank you to all my followers. I hope you will try some of the recipes here 🙂

Anyway, the recipe that I will share to you now is  another Filipino favourite.  This is usually served on breakfast together with fried egg & fried rice. Tocino is a sweet  cured pork.  I got the recipe from Youtube and I love it. My husband loves it too so I hope you could try this sometime. You could watch it here  YouTube

Ingredients

For the syrup

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup pineapple juice

. Mix the two ingredients in a pot and boil. Set aside and let it cool down.

1 kilo pork,cut thinly ( you can use chicken too )

1/4 cup white sugar

2 Tablespoon rice wine/mirin

1 Tablespoon of fine salt

2 teaspoon ground pepper

.Put all the ingredients in a bowl  together with the  syrup. Mix it until fully incorporated. Put in the refrigerator and cure for two days.

After the second day, the cured pork can be either pan-fried or grilled. When pan-frying, heat the oil in a large pan over medium-to-high heat. Pan-fry the pork slices for two to three minutes on each side, until cooked through and browned. Transfer to a plate and continue frying the remaining pork slices. When grilling, grill the pork slices for two to three minutes on each side, until nicely charred.

beef afritada

beef afritada

Another Filipino dish. Afritada usually uses chicken but I just want to try beef . I cooked this using Pinay In Texas Cooking Corner  recipe but I did not put some of the ingredients  as I don’t have it. It is very delicious and my husband loves it. Another  keeper recipe for me 🙂

Procedure:
1. Marinate the pork in soy sauce, pineapple juice and garlic for at least 1 hour. Drain the pork. Save the marinade.
2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, sauté garlic in olive oil until light brown. Add onions and sauté until almost translucent. Add the pork. Saute until it turns light brown.
3. Add the marinade and tomato sauce. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until pork is almost tender. Season with salt and pepper to suit your taste.( Note: I use maggi magic sarap to add a magical taste )
4. Add the potatoes and bell peppers. Cover, lower heat to medium low and let simmer for about 5 minutes. Add green peas and carrots and simmer for 5 more minutes. From time to time, check to avoid drying and add water if necessary to attain the desired consistency of the sauce.
5. Remove from heat. Serve hot with steamed rice.
