Paksiw na Pata


We are planning to cook this one next week since we have extra lechon from Jessie's 1st birthday party. Instead of cooking the raw pata (pork leg with knuckles), we'll gonna use the lechon (roasted pork) pata. MMMM, I'm drooling lol This is a recipe requested by JOAN, I got this from Kumain.com. My Dad has a similar recipe with this one.

Paksiw is a filipino cooking method with vinegar, soy sauce and black pepper. Sugar can be added so it will taste sweet and sour. This is good with rice.
Ingredients
* 1 pork's leg (chopped)
* 1 gram dried banana blossoms (puso)
* 1/2 cup dried oregano leaves or 1/2 tsp. oregano powder
* 1 tbsp. peppercorn (whole)
* 4 gloves garlic, crushed
* 1 cup vinegar
* 2 cups water
* 2 tbsp. soy sauce
* 1 tbsp. salt
* 1/2 brown sugar (pack)

Place pata and all the ingredients in a deep pan with a tight cover. Boil. Lower heat and simmer until meat and skin of the pata is tender and sauce thickens.
