Pinakbet is a vegetable dish originally from the province of Ilocos (located in Northern Luzon). It’s a mix of different vegetables — eggplant, okra, bitter melon, string beans and squash — and seasoned in bagoong or shrimp paste.
1 Saute the garlic, onion and tomatoes. Add pork and saute for a minute.
2 Turn the heat down and add the vegetables, layering them in the pan from the bottom in this order : ampalaya, okra, squash and eggplant.
3 Add the broth, chili and bagoong. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to lowest then simmer for 10-15 minutes until the vegetables are cooked but still firm.
4 Serve with fried or garlic rice. Enjoy!!!
