Comforting Filipino pork Nilaga soup with bok choy and potatoes. This soup is so easy to make with simple ingredients, that you probably already have at your home.
Here is my try on a classic Filipino pork boiled soup. In Russia we like to make similar soup, just instead of bok choy we use cabbage, and we may add some shredded carrots as well.
Nilagang baboy (Filipino pork soup) ingredients
This recipe calls for:
- pork shoulder or rib meat
- bok choy
- fish sauce
- corn (optional)
- cabbage (optional)
As you can see, ingredients are very simple, but the broth is very flavorful and comforting.
Nilagang Baboy (or Pork Nilaga) is a classic Filipino soup dish which translates to boiled pork. You boil pork for about an hour, that makes the broth taste so rich, and then you add your favorite vegetables.
I kept it simple in this recipe and added only bok choy and potatoes. Delicious!
You can buy bok choy almost everywhere this days, i like to shop at Asian markets , they usually have great prices and fresh produce.
I have more delicious pork recipes on my blog, try this caramel pork , so sticky and sweet!
