Patatim’s main ingredients are similar to Adobo except that some includes Banana blossoms. To be honest, I don’t know the difference between having it and not having it. Since that ingredient is rare to find, I cooked it without it. Others use Pork Braised Legs and some are hind legs. For this particular moment, I used hind legs.
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup of vinegar
2 Pork bouillon cubes
2 pcs small pork hind legs, cut into 1 1/2 inch thick
1 tbsp cornstarch
5 pcs bay leaves
1 tsp ground pepper (you can also use peppercorn)
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 whole garlic, minced
1 whole onion, minced
1. Boil the pork hind legs, when almost tender set aside.
2. In a casserole, sauté minced garlic and onions with the oil.
3. Add fish sauce, then pork leg and the rest of the ingredients.
4. Bring to a boil and slowly simmer for half an hour or until tender.
