Pork Pata Estofado

Pork Pata Estofado

A tasty way of cooking pork pata. This is very similar to paksiw na pata because of the banana blossoms, sugar and vinegar in the lists of ingredients. The only difference is pork pata estofado has fried bananas and soy sauce. Cooking this dish is also very easy. If you can cook pork adobo, then I’m sure this dish is easy for you to cook. When buying pork pata, I would suggest choosing the front part of the pig because most of the time the hind part has an unpleasant odor which even if you cleaned it thoroughly and after cooking, you can still smell and taste that very strong boar taint specially if the pig is male.

To cook pork pata estofado; Fry the bananas and set aside. In a medium size pot, put the pork pata, onion, garlic, bay leaves, banana blossoms, soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar and pepper corn. Bring to a boil then simmer for about 45 minutes or until the pork pata is tender. Stir occasionally while cooking. Then add the fried bananas and cook for a few minutes before serving. To see the complete recipe with lists of ingredients in exact measurements, continue reading.
