    How to cook Pork Humba with Peanuts:

    • Wash the pork shoulder and let it drain on a strainer or colander to remove excess water.
    • Cut the pork into large chunks about 2 to 3 inches cubes. You can also remove the skin first before cutting the pork into pieces if you don't like the pork skin.
    • Put in a stainless pot or a clay pot (palayok) then add soy sauce, water and laurel leaves and allow to boil.
    • Simmer until meat is tender then add the brown sugar and cook for a few minutes more until the sugar is melted.
    • Wait until the sauce is already thick in consistency then add the peanuts.
    • Stir cook for a few minutes until the peanuts are well coated with the sauce.
