HOW TO COOK PAKSIW NA PATA

 Alongside with Adobo, Paksiw na Pata is another popular soy-based stew. What makes it different from adobo is the only kind meat that you can use on this dish is pork shank. It is made from the usual soy-vinegar mix with brown sugar, dried banana blossoms, whole peppercorns and dried bayleaf. I also added pineapple tidbits to make this dish more interesting.
