My dad is the most patient man I know and I love him for that. He's also the best bug killer in the world! Thanks dad for loving me, guiding me, and protecting me from all the evil bugs that want to attack me! I love you.
Today, he taught me to make his pinakbet. One of my favorite Filipino dishes. We made this together for my father-in-law. He LOVES this stuff. It really is a simple dish to make and is generally healthy (minus the chicharon!, but who doesn't love a little pig once in a while). Hopefully I'll be able to make this dish on my own one day... but for now, Dad will always make the best pinakbet ever!
1. basic ingredients; tomato, ginger, onion, eggplant, long beans, garlic, okra, chicharon 2. Fish sauce! (bagaoong) 3. Brown the garlic. 4. Add tomatoes, onions, and chicharon. Make chicharon CRISPY! 5. Add eggplant and okra. 6. Add long beans and fish sauce. 7. Cover and let simmer. Toss and take a peek. 8. When vegetables are tender, it's done. Adjust taste with salt or more fish sauce. Plate and enjoy!
Hope everyone had a great Father's day. Any fun or yummy dishes your dad has taught you to make?
