Filipino Sinigang Recipe w/ Pork Ribs | Asian Recipes

Filipino friends, please let me know what you like in your sinigang in the comments!

I got so many request for this recipe, and I am very happy about that because it’s one of my favourite Filipino dishes! I remember the first time having it and thinking “it’s like the Filipino tom yum!” Sinigang is a sour soup, owing its sour flavour from tamarind. With lots of veggies and hearty pork ribs, this is the perfect healthy winter dish.

Nowadays, most people make sinigang using a powdered soup mix, but I make mine completely from scratch and you’ll see that it’s really not any more difficult! Change up with protein if you don’t eat pork, as sinigang can be made with any kind of protein. Change up the veggies, too, if you like!

  15. Elaine Dela Cerna

    I was craving this dish a lot when I was pregnant with my firstborn! But I had to use 1 pack of that Knorr tamarind seasoning because our tamarind here is mostly unripe or sometimes you can't really find tamarind in the wet market. I saute the onions, garlic, ripe tomatoes first and mash it before adding the meat. I also add lots of sliced white radish. Cook some more Filipino dishes! How about Kare kare? Thanks! 🙂

  16. She actually adds the links which is helpful. So many you tubers say they will but then skimp on their editing. Thks Hot Thai Kitchen. I was challenged to do this Pinoy dish from a Filipino co-worker. The game is on!!

    Make some kare kare since your thai dont even mistake it as a satay sauce but they are similar but no thai spices at all try it even once it is annatto peanut sauce based oxtail or seafood stew w/ lots of veggies

  25. Shepherd1 Bak2b6

    I learned from you about the tamarind paste. So I begun buying them now from the Chinese store. Thanks.

  37. Thank you for doing this recipe I love sinigang but I don't want to use the powder package I bought a tamaind in a bottle kind of concentrated juice when i use it I did not like the test it's not sour it was sweet. I did not eat it. Now with how you do it I will definitely make it.
