Pork Ribs Soup with Bok Choy

As an overseas Filipino worker I always look for a recipe that is easy to cook and don't require too much time, and one of the important things I consider is the ingredients where I can easily buy from the market.  Except for the Pork Ribs which is fortunately available in Dubai (Spinneys Market).  If Pork Ribs is not available in your country (most of the countries Middle East), then you can use Beef Ribs instead.  Although, Beef require longer time to tenderize.

If you follow the following cooking instruction, even a newbie can cook this easily.  

These are the ingredients that I've used for this dish:

Ginisang Burong Kanin na may Hipon (Sauteed Fermented Rice with Shrimp)

This is the shortcut way to prepare Ginisang Burong Kanin with Hipon (Sauteed Fermented Rice with Shrimps).  For some, this dish sounds disgusting because of the smell; but for most of the Kapampangans (People in Pampanga, Philippines) this is one of the famous dishes to ever served on the table.  It is usually served with steamed vegetables such as eggplant, bitter melon, okra,  string beans and the most famous one is Mustard Greens or Mustasa in Tagalog.  When this dish is served, expect to serve more steamed rice on the table.

Sautéed Bean Sprouts (with Pork)

When I was in Philippines on vacation, as much as possible I would like to eat Filipino Food that I can’t eat while I’m working overseas.  And when I’m in the Philippines I rarely cook and I want to eat what my Mom cook coz’ I miss the taste.  It’s like being a child again.  One time she cooked Sautéed Bean Sprouts or what call Toge in the Philippines.  Oh boy, what a treat.     

Anyway, here is how my Mom cooked Sautéed Bean Sprouts with Pork.

Tips: Milk in Cans

Do not store half-consumed milk in cans in the refrigerator for a long period of time.  Rust and bacterial growth might affect the quality of the milk.  Instead, remove the contents of the milk can and place in a sterilized bottle or plastic container.
