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. I like this one better because I love anything cooked with coconut milk.

For those who are unfamiliar with this dish (a lot of non-Filipinos are, of course :D) This dish is basically a stew. Pork stew  flavored with bagoong, bagoong alamang which is made out (of millions?? gazillions??) fermented tiny shrimp. There’s another bagoong which is made out of small variety of fish, I think sardines or herring and that kind of  bagoong is called ginamos.  Both bagoong are super-salty so be careful not to put too much.

For this dish, shrimp bagoong is used.

I like bottled shrimp paste that’s sold in the groceries or supermarket over the fresh ones for convenience.

If you can find or can buy uncooked bagoong alamang you may use that too which some people really prefers over the bottled ones.

It may not look appetizing in these photos but this pork dish is super good. This is not for those who are on a low-carb diet because you may find yourself asking for more rice, it cannot be helped. You will eat more rice than your usual serving with this. 😀

Happy Cooking!

Saute garlic, onions and pork in medium high heat.

Add tomatoes and cook until pork is browned then add shrimp paste (bagoong).

Add coconut milk.

Add green chilies and kangkong leaves (water spinach) when pork is tender and when oil starts to come out.

Serve with fried eggplant slices (optional) and lots of rice!

Up-close. See that oil? Yum!!

I like to finish my meal with an ice-cold coke to cut the saltiness and grease. For me, this is one of life’s simple pleasures –greasy, oily or fatty delicious food and ice-cold coke 😀
