For our dinner I cooked sinigang na manok (sinigang is very popular Filipino soup). I think I already cooked this dish but for sure with the help of my mother. Earlier, I made all by myself. For me it’s a big accomplishment, hahah! I do bake but not professional and sometimes cook dishes but always have this negative thinking that whoever eats won’t like it. Anyway, back to sinigang, I’m happy because my daughter was the one to taste it and she liked it. We all know that sinigang has sour taste; my daughter likes it and even singing asim kilig, commercial of knorr sinigang. Sorry I don’t have the photo of my sinigang na manok but indeed tasted good.
Here’s what I used: onion, tomatoes, chicken, salt (I like to put fish sauce but not available), pepper, water, string beans, radish, kangkong (river spinach), siling haba (long chili) and knorr sinigang mix.
First sauté onion and when translucent add tomatoes until cooked. Add chicken and let it cook for awhile until it changed color to slightly brown. Add water and season with salt and pepper. Put knorr sinigang mix as well and let it simmer. When the chicken is cooked, its time to add the vegetables; string beans, radish, siling haba and put kangkong last maybe a minute before you turn off the fire.
For sure this is not the last time I will be cooking sinigang since my daughter likes it. And the next time I will make sure to take photo of my sinigang.
