Liempo Estofado is a sweet stew composed of pork belly (liempo),saba banana,and carrots.The components are cooked in mixture of soy sauce,醋，and sugar.This estofado recipe is a mild version similar tohumbaandadobo– this means that it is perfect with warm steamed white rice.Yum!!
Preparing liempo estofado is simple.Just like most of the Filipino Stew recipes,the garlic needs to be quickly sautéed before the pork is added.The pork belly is made tender by simmering,其余的成分都是最后加上去的。
It took me around 45 minutes to tenderize the pork belly.There will be a chance that the liquid will evaporate completely before the pork gets tender.In this case,try to add water before it happens.
