Pork Binagoongan sa Gata (Pork Stew with Shrimp Paste and Coconut Cream)

Pork Binagoongan sa Gata (Pork Stew with Shrimp Paste and Coconut Cream)

This is another version of cooking pork with shrimp paste stew (Binagoongang Baboy). This version has gata (coconut milk or coconut cream) and cooked without pre-boiling the pork first.
