Sinigang Na Baboy Sa Gabi Recipe

Sinigang sa sampaloc just got a touch creamier with gabi.
two bowls of sinigang na baboy or pork sinigang with okra, radish, and pork chunks

Gabi, or taro root, is potato-like in texture. It is tender when cooked and has a slightly nutty, sweet flavor. In this pork sinigang or sinigang na baboy with gabi recipe, it’s a great complement to the sourness of the sampaloc and savory flavors of the pork. It also transforms sinigang, a popular Filipino sour soup into a mixture that’s thicker without making it gelatinous. What you get is a delicious sinigang recipe that has some heft to it.
