Sweet Pork Adobo

Filed under: Food — Tags: , , — jrcanedo @ 5:36 pm

I made a Sweet Pork Adobo for my wife, because she is missing my cooking style. Usually, the pork adobo is not sweet (a little bit sour or salty) and have plenty of sauce. But, my sweet pork adobo is totally different than the usual.

Here is how I made the food, namely:


  1. 1 kg. – Pork cut into small sizes
  2. 5 pcs – Garlic in small pieces
  3. 2 pcs – Red onions in medium size
  4. 1/2 cup – Brown Sugar (increase if you want more sweet taste)
  5. 1/2 cup – Coconut Vinegar
  6. 1/4 cup – Soy Sauce
  7. 1/4 teaspoon – Pepper powder (Pamienta) (increase if you want more HOT!)
  8. 1 pinch – Coriander seeds
  9. 2 small cups – Water
  10. 2 pinch – Salt


  1. I used a glass cooking ware suited to accommodate the one (1) kilogram of pork and other ingredients.
  2. Put all the ingredients into the glass cooking ware.
  3. Place the glass cooking ware to the lighted burner (medium fire). Make sure that the glass cooking ware has a cover.
  4. Let it simmer and test if the pork is so tender and tasty.
  5. Let the liquids go down but not dry. If the pork is not so tender, just add one half cup of water and repeat the instructions above.
  6. Serve the food for 6 persons.

Enjoy your meal.

Healthy Foods from Kitchenomics

Filed under: Food — Tags: , , , , , — jrcanedo @ 3:41 pm

I am a bit experimenter if we talk about FOOD. I like healthy, delicious, and less expensive food. I tried different dishes from native Filipino dishes, Italian dishes, Indian foods, etc. In short, I loved cooking so much. However, I liked eating food rather than preparing food, but sad to say, we cannot control the quality of the prepared food.  That’s why I am recommending YOU to cook and prepare your own food. 

I was asked by my sister to look for menus that are available in the internet. Here is what I found out….it’s Kitchenomics established by Del Monte Corporation. Of course, it is expected that the ingredients are from Del Monte products.

Enjoy your meals.

Homemade Sukang Hinalang is Here!

How to make a homemade Sukang Hinalang?

The sukang hinalang (spicy vinegar) derived from coconut tree with hot chili (siling kulikot) was the oldest condiments inherited from our Filipino old folks. Usually, sukang hinalang was intended to compliments the main course (food) e.g. kinilaw, sinuglaw, sinugbang panga (tuna), pork chops, litsong baboy, balut, etc.

There are plenty of applications of sukang hinalang but somehow it is difficult to make, if you are away from home (away from Philippines). I guessed there are plenty of white vinegar derived from sugarcane in your place, plenty of imported hot chili, garlic, salted fish sauce or salt, and ginger from other countries.


  1. 1-liter——– white coconut vinegar (bahal na tuba) or white sugarcane vinegar
  2. 1-cup——— hot chili or siling kulikot
  3. 1/2 cup —— garlic
  4. 1/4 cup—— ginger
  5. 1 – 2 cups—- salted fish sauce or salt


  1. Prepare a very clean blender machine or food processor.
  2. Initially pour 3-4 cups of vinegar, and add all other ingredients into the blender machine.
  3. Blend everything and observe the texture and fineness of the ingredients inside the blender machine. The fineness is the texture, the better!
  4. Add all the remaining vinegar and blend it again for a few seconds or a minute.
  5. Prepare a clean and very fine strainer in order to separate the sediments from the liquid. (optional)
  6. Add 1-2 cups of salted fish sauce and stir. However, if salted fish sauce is not available in your place, you can use rock salt but it must be grinned and mix with a little portion of processed hot vinegar. Of course, it is NO longer using the same proportion or quantity as previously stated. This time you will be an instant chemists!
  7. Stir in order to mix well the ingredients. That’s it…..tapos na (it’s Finish)! Store it inside the bottle only. Avoid using plastic or metallic container in order to avoid chemical reactions.

Be careful of using this condiments because you might be SURPRISED…that’s why we call it HINALANG! Enjoy eating healthy foods.

Steak ala Pobre

Filed under: Food — Tags: , , — jrcanedo @ 11:37 pm

The steak ala pobre (steak for the poor) is the main menu of Karlyn’s Food Station at Ecoland Branch, Dona Luisa Village, Davao City, Tel. #: 299-0087. I’ve tasted this food and I cannot believe it, seems the name of the menu is the reverse of what you experience….it must be a steak ala dato (steak for the rich)! Why?… because it’s very tasty and delicious….it melts inside your mouth. There are plenty of delicious foods aside from the main menu, namely: beef lengua, ukoy, chicken and vegetables…When i get back there, i have to ask more details about their menu….They also served very hot soup from beef. It taste pure beef flavor….not an ordinary taste…. just like some restaurant offered soup just for a compliment only.

Last night, we took our dinner in Karlyn’s Food Station and we spent P331.00 for the three of us. We ordered two steak ala pobre, a saucy beef, chicken, rice and ice cold Pepsi Cola. See?… our food here in Davao City are very affordable and most importantly delicious.
