Humba

scheduled post!
Have you ever heard of "HUMBA"? Humba is one of the dishes serve in the table during Philippine fiestas and any other occasions. It is a popular Filipino dish in places like Mindanao and in Visayas regions. I don't know exactly the term of humba in Luzon areas. Do you know?


Even within every Filipino household, the preparation of this simple Humba varies greatly. Besides the usual addition and subtraction of ingredients, some recipes recommend the use of pig trotters instead of the more common pork belly. Adding to complexity of this dish, other recipes even suggest adding mushrooms, banana blossoms, rice wine, hard-boiled eggs and even potatoes into the mix.

I found a simple recipe from a forum website, but I don't have all the ingredients. So I decided to make my own version. It was delicious and easy to prepare!

All you need:
pork cuts
crushed garlic
sliced onions
soy sauce
coke/sprite
crushed pepper corn
bay leaf

First, marinate pork with garlic, onions and soy sauce for 2 hours. Put in on a pan, add 3 cups of coke/sprite (instead of water). Then bring it to boil. Add in pepper corn, and bay leaf. Let it cook until meat is tender. Serve with rice!

I learned humba from my wife who is from Samar. And ever since I got hooked to it. Pero iba pa rin ang luto ng misis ko, mas masarap. My children really love the humba of my wife. Sigh, they just have to eat my humba, pinagtityagaan na lamang, lol.
Thanks for the usual yummy post. God bless you all always.
