Sinigang is tamarind base soup; Pork, shrimp, fish and beef can be use to make this soup. I like pork sinigang the best, and I am so very proud to say even before I hardly knew how to cook that I can make a really good sinigang but it didn't come from me, my sisters and even my mother said so :)

if you can't find young tamarind fruit, just use sinigang mix; I actually use mix most of the time when making sinigang because it's very convenient and easily available. Put as many veggies as you like.
