Mama Tet Cooks: Adobong Kangkong

Day 30.

It was Day 30 of the ECQ here in Pampanga and it was today when the nearby barangay where the wet market was, announced an immediate change of the market day. We can only go to the market on Wednesdays and Saturday and today is a Friday. Finally it was implemented. It is actually a good step to limit people going out. We've actually been waiting for it for a while now and it was implemented today. 

Sadly though, we aren't prepared for it as we didn't actually store a lot of food because we don't have cash on hand yet. Good thing I have ground pork and kangkong in hand. Actually, the kangkong almost wilted already because I'm waiting to use it for the sinigang. I'm thinking of buying some pork shanks but it got delayed and now there's a change of plan. 

So today, we had a simple dish instead. It is Adobong Kangkong with Ground Pork and I wish to share it here since this is one of the option to have a delicious and healthy meal for the family. Very affordable too!


     1 small onion
     3 cloves garlic
     2 bundle kangkong
     1/8 ground Pork
     1 tablespoon oyster Sauce
     pinch of salt and pepper to taste

1. Saute onions, garlic and ground pork. Wait for the ground pork to turn brown in color then add a dash of pepper. I add pepper first to make sure that it gives flavor to the pork. You can opt to add fish sauce if you want. 
2. Add the kangkong stem first and bring to a boil.
3. Once the stems are soft, add the kangkong leaves. You can also add them both together if you wish. 
4. Add oyster sauce and bring to a boil. You can opt to add water if you want to have more sauce. 
5. Add salt and pepper to taste.

That's it! Simple and delicious dish for the family. I actually ate a lot of rice with it. Hubby ate it without rice though. 

You can add your leftover meat on this dish instead of ground pork. This dish is less than 100 peso and it lasted until dinner for 3 persons. Well, that will depend if you are a heavy eater. You can also make it special by adding toasted garlic on top or pineapple chunks.

By the way, this is my first recipe on the blog. I hope I can create more since I only own the kitchen when my MIL isn't around. 😆 Right now, she's in Leyte so I am in charge of the kitchen. I hope this opportunity will give me more content in cooking so hope you can watch out for that.

I will cook simple dishes first then hopefully, I can transition to a more complex dish. (If I can do it 😂)

To more cooked food 💕

Much Love, Mommy ❤
