In the spirit of reminiscing the good times gone by, we’ve collecte all of the top recipes that you’ve loved to make on Yummy.ph.
Here Are Your Favorite Yummy.ph Recipes This 2023:
1 Pork Siomai Recipe
Even though most regard siomai as Chinese food, it holds a special place in every Filipino’s heart — and the top place when it comes to this year’s top Yummy.ph recipes! This savory pork siomai recipe is filled with pork and veggies, can be made ahead in big batches, and only takes a few minutes to cook. It’s the perfect make-ahead snack or low-budget meal, depending on your preference.
2 Cheese Puto Recipe
This simple but irresistably delicious Filipino delicacy is number two on the top 10 list, and honestly, we cannot see why not! Not only is it easy to make; the sweet rice cake is complemented really well by the salty cheese topping. If you didn’t make this cheese puto recipe in 2023, we recommend you try it in 2024. It’s never too late to learn how to make this quintessential kakanin!
3 Vegetable Kare-kare Recipe
This year, we are also happy to report that your 2023 New Year’s Resolutions to eat healthier did not go to vain, as we’ve got a lot of vegetable dishes that made it to the top of our list! Chief among them is this twist on the classic kare-kare, where instead of the usual beef, we made veggies like sitaw, eggplant, and bok choy the star of the show. This vegetable kare-kare recipe is a yummy dish to make when you want something savory and hearty.
5 Jollibee Burger Steak Recipe Hack
Considering that this year, we said goodbye to Jollibee’s lumpiang shanghai, it was mildly surprising to us that our Jollibee Burger Steak Recipe Hack was one of your favorites this year. This recipe hack gives you a thicker patty and and equally delicious mushroom sauce, and lets you enjoy your favorite fast food dish right at home!
6 Paksiw na Isda Recipe
What we love about this paksiw na isda recipe is just how versatile it is. While we use bangus or milkfish in this particular one, you can definitely swap it out with tanigue, salmon, tuna, tilapia, or almost any fish you prefer!
7 Lugaw with Egg Recipe
This lugaw with egg recipe has also long been a favorite on Yummy.ph. Not only does it yield a hearty, comforting bowl of deliciously savory lugaw; it’s topped with a perfectly cooked hard-boiled egg for that extra protein. Plus, it takes less than an hour to make, so you can always have a hot bowl of lugaw whenever you’re craving it in almost no time at all.
9 Sinampalukang Manok Recipe with Fresh Sampaloc
Speaking of comfort soups, this sinampalukang manok recipe with fresh sampaloc is as comforting as it gets. It’s tangy, savory, and hearty, and it takes a shorter time to make than pork sinigang or beef nilaga as you don’t have to boil the chicken for too long to get it tender.
10 Chicken Skin Recipe
It’s such a convenience that you can now easily buy bags of just chicken skin in the supermarket because now you can make your own chicken skin recipe without having to peel the skin off of several… well, chickens! These flavorful, crunchy snacks are perfect as bar chow or as an appetizer; just make sure to make a lot because we’ve found that it’s difficult to munch on just a few pieces.
