2:50PM - Fake Palabok

Surprisingly tastes like the real thing...

For the sauce combine -
Cream of Mushroom soup
Clam Chowder
Smoked oysters
Ground pork sauted in garlic
a bit of red food coloring if you wish

Put that on top of rice noodles, cooked

for toppings -
crushed chicaron (fried crunchy pork skins)
chopped up boiled eggs
whatever else you put on top of palabok


Current mood: satisfied

8:55AM - Lookie what I found


I'm not a vegetarian. There's no way I could give up chicken/beef/pork/animals for that matter but I thought this was an interesting take. Maybe this is a good idea for Lent, next year.

10:22AM - Sudden craving...

...for piaya! However, since it's somewhat hard to find (I haven't seen it anywhere here in the Filipino grocery stores - Panorama City, etc.), does anyone have a recipe they'd be willing to give up? Please?

Why is it that the Nora Daza cookbook, Let's Cook with Nora, is so darn hard to acquire here in the US? Grrr. Tatak Pilipino had one (one!) copy of it. The other places online that had it were around the same price...but then you end up paying $10-20 for shipping costs because they have to "airmail" it from the Philippines. Grrr.

The Nora Daza cookbook should be a staple in every Filipino's kitchen.

i just made a soup based on my memory of it... no idea what it's called.

it had beef chunks (stew cut), bok choy, onions, and potatoes (though i know the dish usually has taro instead). Soup base was water, peppercorns, some soy sauce (but not sure if it uses fish sauce originally).

I seasoned the beef first with kosher salt and peppers, and browned in pot w/ the onions. then added the water, 3 splashes of soy sauce, peppercorns. let it boil for a while, added potatoes at some point, then the bok choy.

served over rice.

ok...this isn't exactly a recipe more than a question. what dish was i remembering, and trying to replicate? is it just Nilaga (sp?).

i still need to get a Pilipino cookbook, obviously.

do any of you know of any good Filipino cookbooks out there? all the recipes i have are handed down from family, but i needed something a little more... i can't keep calling my aunts every time i want to make kare-kare!

if you know of anyplace in the NYC area that sells Fil/Fil-Am cookbooks or somewhere i can get one online, i would really appreciate it.

Hi everyone! I am new to the board, but not to LJ :)

I am Melanie and I would have to say my all time favorite filipino dish would be kare-kare! I request it every birthday! It's not perfect without ox tails and tripe (sp?)

BTW: I am from Jacksonville, FL

When it comes to places to get filipino desserts..Goldilocks and Red Ribbon are the best! I can't wait to go to the Philippines! I am going this July!

Lechon Manok, here i come!!!

I have to cook a Filipino desert for my cousin's party.

However, I'm being tested. That means: no help from the other family members! So anyone have any suggestions? Recipes?

10:16AM - ginataan

Hello everyone, Happy Holidays and such -

I'm making Ginataan for a party on Saturday, and I have made it once before, to semi-disastruous results. So I need some help ASAP.

Last time I made it, the sago frikkin dissolved in the coconut milk, it must have been inferior..., and I ended up having to put more (the bottled in syrup kind), which turned out undercooked and a little tough to chew, and the rice balls were a bit overcooked and fell apart when one put it in the mouth.

I am also using Saba (the big bananas), Kamote (yam or sweet potato?), and Taro. And Coconut Milk.

I've tried looking for recipes online but they all require more or different ingredients that I'm not using.

Finally, I used some of the syrup from the bottled sago because it is sweet, right?? But I think it made the whole thing super acidic because it really hurt my throat trying to eat it afterwards. Is that something where I can just use white sugar?

Help! Pleeeease...

1:45AM - >>>

Christmas feels so much "Christmas-er" when you eat bibinka ang puto bumbong...

Why is that?
