Pork Monggo step by step
- In a pot, boil washed mung beans in water (make sure beans are covered in water, add more whenever necessary to avoid burning) for 30-45 minutes or until soft/cooked. Set aside..
- Heat pan in oil and add garlic and onion. Cook until garlic is light golden brown and onion is translucent. Add tomatoes and dried shrimp cook for about 2-3 minutes.Add ampalaya/bitter melon or gourd that was soaked in hot water to remove bitterness (make sure to rinse and remove water from ampalaya). Set aside..
- In the same pan, add pork and cook for about 20-30 minutes or until all sides have browned. If the cut pork has fat, I like making sure the fat part is toasted to make it crunchy. Or just throw the pork in the air fryer to cook..
- Add cooked pork, garlic, onions, ampalaya/bittermelon, tomatoes, dried shrimp and pork cube to the pot with the cooked monggo beans and bring to a boil. Add fish sauce, salt, and pepper to taste. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Turn the heat off. Add malunggay leaves and cover pot for another 5 minutes to let the residual heat cook the leaves..
- Serve with chicharon or tinapa flakes on top and with a side of steamed white rice..
