Tupig is a popular Filipino recipe/delicacy that is composed of glutinous rice “Malagkit”, coconut mik and shredded young coconut meat wrapped in fresh banana leaves and gill in hot charcoal.  It is an all-time favourite present “Pasalubong” among tourists and travellers.

Tupig filipino recipe is one of the best native Filipino delicacies for merienda or giveaways to relatives and friends. There are different Filipino versions depending where it is being made. But for now, this is my version of Tupig Filipino Recipe. Have fun and Enjoy!

 

Ingredients:

2 cups glutinous rice

1 pc. big banana leaf

1 cup young coconut strips

1 – 1 ½ cup coconut milk

½ cup brown sugar

 

Directions:

Add glutinous rice in a bowl and pour enough water to soak the rice and leave it in a room temperature overnight.

Then after that, drain the water from the rice then place in a cheese cloth to remove excess liquid.

Place in a food processor or blender and process until it becomes powder then add the coconut milk and sugar and continue to blend until even in consistency.

Place mixture in a bowl and add the coconut strips.

Place 2 tbsp. of mixture in the centre of the banana leaf then wrap by rolling and fold the edges to avoid dripping. This would be very tricky as the dough is runny, it takes practice.

Immediately place and grill in charcoal once you wrap one.

Cook by turning frequently.

Once the banana leaf is charred on both sides, remove it from the grill then set aside to cool down a little before serving.

Serve while it hot,

Paksiw na Pata (Pork Stew in Vinegar and Soy Sauce) Recipe!!!

Paksiw na Pata (Pork Stew in Vinegar and Soy Sauce) Recipe!!!

Paksiw na pata is another variation of soy-based Filipino stews but in this dish  banana blossoms and pork shanks are used as well as brown sugar to sweeten the sauce. This dish can easily be a one-step process with all the ingredients thrown together in one wok or pot and forgotten until done.

Paksiw na Pata is cooked in vinegar and soy sauce. Although the term (PAKSIW) generally means cooking in vinegar and garlic; “soy sauce” is added to bring additional flavor and color.

This dish is very easy to prepare and to cook. This is my version of Paksiw na Pata (Pork Hock Sweet Sour Stew) Recipe! Enjoy!

1½ kg. pork legs, sliced into 1½ in sections

½ cup dried banana blossoms

4-5 pcs. bay leaves, dried

¼ cup brown sugar

½ cup soy sauce

½ cup vinegar

8-10 cloves garlic, minced

2 cups water

1 tbsp. whole peppercorns

4-5 tbsp. cooking oil

1 tbsp. salt or salt to taste

 

Directions:

In a wok over medium heat, add oil then add the pork legs. Sauté until pork legs turns brown and remove from wok then set aside.

In a wok over medium heat, sauté garlic then add the pork legs, water together with the soy sauce, half of the vinegar, peppercorn and dried bay leaves.

Bring to a boil then simmer in low heat for 1½ – 2 hours until tender.

Recipe Notes

I like to first braise the meat before I simmer to falling-off-the-bone tenderness. Its a very useful technique particularly for tougher cuts of meats such as shanks, rumps or roasts and is effective in sealing flavor and adding color.

Homemade Tocino (Sweet Cured Pork) Filipino Style Recipe!!!

Homemade Tocino (Sweet Cured Pork) Filipino Style Recipe!!!

Tocino (Sweet Cured Pork) is made from pork and the preparation is similar to ham and bacon although chicken and beef sometimes can be used as an alternatives.

Pork Tocino was said to be named after the Spanish word (Tocino) which is used to describe cured meats. It is often reddish in colour and has a savoury and sweet taste.

It is usually served for breakfast together with fried garlic rice or steamed rice. Preparing it is nothing more than lightly frying it until it caramelizes on the edges. You can find this dish in many “Carinderia” or small restaurants and even in big fast food chains in the Philippines.  It’s a very easy to prepare yet a tasty dish.

I like dipping it in a garlic vinegar sauce!

This is my version of Homemade Tocino (Sweet Cured Pork) Recipe, I’m sure you will love it.

 

Ingredients:

1 kg. pork shoulder (boneless, cut into thin strips)

1 cup sprite soft drink or 7-up

4 tbsp. soy sauce (add a little water to avoid dark colour, it should be light or not too black)

1 cup pineapple juice

6 tbsp. ketchup

2 cups brown sugar

2 cloves garlic, minced or 1 tbsp. garlic powder

5 tsp. salt

1 tsp. ground black pepper

 

Directions:

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and cover and make sure that all the meat are covered with the marinade.

Store it in the fridge (chiller) for at least 2 days to cure the meat properly.

If its ready you can process to the next step.

In a pan over medium heat, pour some of the marinade and few tbsp. of water.

Let it simmer until all the liquid evaporates.

Add a little bit cooking oil and fry it.

Serve with steamed or fried rice, eggs and tomatoes.

Sweet Sesame Seed Chicken Wings

Sweet Sesame Seed Chicken Wings

Sweet sesame seed chicken wingsThe other week my daughter Jaime and I were discussing dishes she could take to a pot luck at the Hawaiian Club. Now Jaime and her family do not eat beef or pork so we were limited to seafood or poultry.  I suggested she make Shoyu Chicken, that’s an easy dish and definitely local Hawaii food.  Then I remembered these chicken wings my mother used to make for pot lucks, we called it Sweet Sesame Seed Chicken Wings.  They were yummy!

Sweet Sesame Seed Chicken Wings are deep fried sweet garlicy wing pieces.  They’re not crispy, but are very juicy, flavorful, and tender.

 

They take a bit of time to prepare, mostly because they’re deep fried.  They’re probably not the healthiest chicken dish you’ll ever have, but they are so worth the time and calories.

I couldn’t find the recipe, in fact I’m not even sure if she had one written down.  When I asked her about she couldn’t remember, so I had to figure it out on my own, based on a vague memory.  It wasn’t really difficult to figure it out and I was able to make it in time for Super Bowl Sunday.  They came out “ono” as we say in Hawaii.  My family loved them!  I’m sure we’ll be making them for future get togethers and pot lucks.

Ingredients:

4 Lbs. Chicken Wings

1 Cup Mochiko Sweet Rice Flour

1/2 Cup Brown Sugar – firmly packed

1 Cup Soy Sauce

1/4 Cup Sesame Oil

2-3 Cloved Garlic – minced

2 Tbs. Sesame Seeds + extra for garnish if desired

2 Stalks Green Onions – chopped + extra for garnish if desired

Oil for frying

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together until Mochiko dissolves (except for frying oil and chicken wings)  Mixture will be a milky brown

Pour Marinade into large ziplock bag and put chicken wings in

Marinate in refrigerator at least 3 hours

Heat oil and deep fry chicken wings until done, about 10 minutes

Drain on paper towel

Arrange on serving dish and garnish with more chopped green onions and sesame seed if desired
