Sinigang na Baboy sa Gabi (Filipino Pork Soup with Taro)

{{totalReview}}
A native Filipino dish, Sinigang is a soup or stew that is characterized by its sour and savory taste - all thanks to the use of sampalok, or more commonly known as tamarind. While other types of proteins can be used, Sinigang na Baboy sa Gabi uses cuts of pork - in this recipe, we’re using Liempo (pork belly). To make this dish more filling, a variety of vegetables are added and this recipe calls for the addition of taro as well. Serve this up hot with a bowl of rice and you have yourself a classic Pinoy comfort food.
