Bicol Express

I was feeling nostalgic the other day so my mind was filled with thoughts of things from back home. To ease up my homesick feeling, I made us some bicol express. Hubby love this dish even though he doesn't like shrimp paste taste hehehe.

Some people in Bicol cook this in oil but I love to cook it with coconut milk with lots of hot pepper.
I'll share the recipe if someone asks hehehe. Need to go to the store NOW..

Okay here is a simple recipe in making bicol express..

You need:

  1. 1 lb pork (some like the fatty ones.. I don't lol), I use stew meat.
  2. a can of coconut milk
  3. onion and garlic
  4. tomato
  5. shrimp paste
  6. hot peppers
  7. salt and black pepper to taste

  1. Cut the pork according to desired size.
  2. Slice the tomato and onion/crush the garlic
  3. Slice the peppers, the hotter the pepper is the better (wink).
  4. Open the can of coco milk and put it in the pan, add the onion, garlic, tomato, a spoon of shrimp paste, and salt and pepper
  5. Let it simmer and add the meat, stirring the coconut milk so it won't form a lump.
  6. When the meat is cook, add the hot pepper.
  7. Serve it with rice and you have a nice smokin' hot meal!
Just remember....

that a little bit of this
and a little dash of that
makes a sumptuous life...

so Spice Up Your Life.

Together with laing, Bicol express is my favorite Bicolano dish. Yung nakakain ko dito sa Bulacn and Metro Manila ay puro poor imitations lang. I love to taste your laing and Bicol express. Someday, when God permits, I would like to taste your own cooking of laing and Bicol express when I visit Donsol and the world famous butanding. Baka dalaga at binata na si Rylie at EJ pag dating nang time na yun, lol. Thanks for your usual yummy post. God bless you all always.

ohmygulay! this is perfect with steamed rice, and eating with bare hands (nakataas pa ang paa! LOL). i prefer coco milk too, than oil, pork fat would be enough.:p

Wow, I love Bicol Express just as much as I love laing. Adding pineapple chunks in it made it more acceptable to John. Did your kids like it too? Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
