Binagoongan Baboy

Contrary to popular belief, I am not dead.
5/22/12 Binagoongan Baboy
Okay, I'm not even going to lie and say I know how to pronounce the name of this dish. I know it as pork bagoong (shrimp sauce), which I can pronounce. I know because that's what the guy at the restaurant called it. I am not Filipino, but I eat a lot of Filipino food. Right now I'm on a relatively unhealthy trend of going to either one of two of my favorite Filipino restaurants once a week.

Anyway, one of the places that I go to serves this, and I really, really like it. Not quite as much as lechon kawali, but almost. I was curious about how it's made, so I looked up recipes and it looked easy enough. And it was. Not quite the same as the restaurant's, but good. The key ingredient is the bagoong.

  1. It's pronounced bah - go - ong

    You can get that at the Filipino store. There is some in the fridge section (near pickles etc.) and some types in the perserved sections. I gave some to Shiz a while back.
