Pork Skirts and Nuts

Pork skirts….One of the cheapest pork meat available on the market. Do you know why, it is not tender as what you expect from a pork meat. Well let’s make it tender. First, using a tenderizer or if you don’t have any, just flip the back of a chopping knife and smashed the pork and cut it into bite size. Then boil them using a low heat settings with a “solid stainless steel fork” upon boiling. I learned it to my uncles method of cooking. Its their traditional way of tendering meat without using a pressure cooker. It’s a belief, Sorry I can’t share the reason today because he is in the Philippines. But believe it or not? It works!!!………………Did you know that the nuts I used in this recipe is cashew nuts? and this nuts are rich in “heart-friendly” monounsaturated fatty acids like oleic and palmitoleic acids that help to lower or bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol. Research studies suggest that Mediterranean diet, which is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids helps to prevent coronary artery disease and strokes by favoring healthy blood lipid profile……
