Paksiw na Pata (pork hocks with banana blossoms)


To be honest, I am craving for an Adobo dish, but since my wife seems to be tired of eating my favorite dish(adobo) I decided to cook this “Paksiw na pata”…. and still, it is a very similar dish to Adobo, just have a strong taste of vinegar and the flavor of banana blossoms…….Did you now that banana blossom is an excellent source of fibre in the human diet. The benefits of having fibre in the diet are well documented in nutritional and medical literature. Banana blossom is a rich source of other nutrients and antioxidants which have several health benefits.

  • 1 tsp peppercorns
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup dried banana blossoms
  • 4 pcs dried chillies(optional)
  • 1/2 cup water
