How To Make Sinigang na Baboy

Sinigang na baboy is a Filipino soup made of pork with a tamarind-flavored broth that imparts a sour flavor to the savory dish.

Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 1 hr 45 mins
Total: 2 hrs


  • 2 lb pork spare ribs, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 8 cup water
  • 2 tomatoes, large, quartered
  • 1 onion, medium, peeled and quartered
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 6 gabi, peeled and halved depending on size
  • 1 radish, (labanos), 6-inch, peeled and sliced to ½-inch thick half-rounds
  • 2 chilies, (siling haba)
  • long beans, (sitaw), ½ bunch, ends trimmed and cut into 3-inch lengths
  • 1 eggplant, ends trimmed and sliced to ½-inch thick half-roundsnt
  • 6 okra, ends trimmed
  • 15 tamarind, large, or 1½ (1.41 ounces each) packages tamarind base powder
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 1 bunch bok choy, or pechay, ends trimmed and separated into leaves


  1. Rinse pork ribs and drain well.
  2. In a pot over medium heat, combine pork and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, skimming scum that accumulates on top.
  3. Once broth clears, add tomatoes, onion, and fish sauce. Lower heat and simmer for about 1 to 1½ hours or until meat is tender, adding more water as necessary to maintain about 8 cups.

  4. Add gabi and cook for about 4 to 6 minutes or until tender.
  5. Add chili peppers and radish. Continue to simmer for about 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Add long beans. Continue to cook for about 2 minutes.
  7. Add eggplant and okra and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.
  8. If using packaged tamarind base, add to the pot and stir until completely dissolved.
  9. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Add bok choy and continue to cook for about 1 minute. Serve hot.
