This is an easy pork ginataang langka recipe with minimal ingredients. I recommend this to everyone, especially beginners and those who are thinking about trying cooking for the first time.


I remember enjoying it in the Philippines when I was a kid. This is one of the dishes that my mother cooks regularly. She also adds bago leaves to her ginataang langka. This makes the meal more enjoyable.

Cooking ginataang langka with pork
This is a simple dish that is quick and easy to prepare. Start by making coconut milk. Pour the Knorr Ginataang Gulay recipe mixture into a bowl. Add 2 cups of water. Use water at room temperature. Stir until the powder is completely dissolved. You can use a spoon to stir the mixture. Using a wire whisk works best. Now it’s a mixture of coconut milk. Put it off for a while.


Now you need to fry the onion and garlic. To do this, heat the oil in a saucepan. I use canola oil in this recipe. You can use other types of oils such as vegetable oil or peanut butter. Put the chopped onion into the pan once the oil is hot. Cook for 30 seconds before adding the garlic. There is no preference for the type and color of the bow used. Shallots can also be used for this recipe. Continue frying until the onion is soft. This may take 2 to 3 minutes.

The next thing to do is fry the pork. I love pork cooked completely before adding coconut milk. It is best to use thinly sliced ​​pork cut into small pieces because it cooks quickly and becomes tender easily. I usually sauté it for 5 minutes or until medium brown, then add chopped unripe jackfruit. Jackfruit is also known as green jackfruit. I usually buy it fresh and already cut in the Philippines. Canned green jackfruit is also available. This is the only option I have at the moment. Chili peppers such as Thai chili or siling labuyo are added later to add spice to our ginataang langka.

Now add the coconut milk mixture. Stir and let boil. Adjust the heat to medium as soon as the mixture comes to a boil. Continue cooking, stirring, until sauce is reduced. You can also cook longer until the sauce has completely evaporated if you prefer.

You can also prepare a similar dish using other ingredients. A good example is Ginataang langka with crab. Ask me questions by commenting below.
