Pork Ribs Sinigang or Sinigang is a Filipino word of “to stew”. It is often associated with dishes in sour soup and different kinds of proteins or shrimps. The more traditional approach of cooking this dish is deriving their sourness from native ingredients such as tamarind or santol. But because the process of cooking with these native ingredients is time consuming and a bit challenging we replace it with store bought sinigang mix. You can use different pork cuts in cooking sinigang. The most common is pork belly like what i used with my binagoongan recipe. In this recipe I used the ribs hence pork ribs sinigang, because personally I thing this part of the pork give the soup more taste. So let’s dive to it and cook!
