pork ribs nilaga

k bought pork spare ribs from the grocery as well as bisol (gabi?), pechay and string beans. therefore i conclude, i had to prepare nilaga.

mmmm... i liked the bisol and the soup was just oh so good.

7 slices pork spare ribs
1 onion, quarted
1 thumb-sized ginger, sliced
1 tomato, chopped
1 spring onion, separate white part from green part, chopped
3 gabi, peeled and cut into serving portions
1 bunch pechay, separate the white part from the green part
1 handful string beans, sliced into 2" long
salt and pepper

in a casserole, place the pork spare ribs, onion, white part of onion and ginger. pour enough water. boil over high heat and then lower the heat and simmer until very tender, about 1-2 hours. you may need to add more water.

when tender, add the gabi, tomato and season with salt and pepper. continue simmering until gabi are tender.

taste according to your preference. add the white part of pechay and the string beans and simmer for another minute. turn off the heat and then place the green part of pechay on top. cover.

serve real hot.
