Sinigang Na Pata ng Baboy (sour pork hocks)

Sinigang is one of the favourite dish of most Filipinos. Back home almost every week this is our cycle menu. Our weekly menu compose of Adobo, Kaldereta, Pinakbet, Kare-Kare and this dish.  But believe it or not, Because I am posting new recipes from monday to friday. I have set aside this food. Its been almost half a year we did not eat this dish. Well, The good thing about this food blog is every night our dinner is different…….. This will be the second time I will be posting the recipe, the difference will be the meat and the vegetables I used. This one is more traditional as I used radish, kangkong leaves, egg-plant, gabi, ocra and onions. It’s a whole bundle of vegetables. The soup is much tastier as I used pork hocks. by the way, this post is my 300th food recipe……….Happy 300th day to foodtrip!!!!………………………..Did you know that bundles of vegetables I used in this recipe such as radish the fiber in the radish helps fight colon cancer, the vegetable also contains a group of compounds called isothiocyanates, which are shown to be effective against other cancer cell lines. Some researchers tested various parts of the radish plant against human cancer cells. The results of their study show that the compounds in the radish bulb, or root, affect genetic pathways in the cancer cells, inducing cancer cell death…….
