One of my favorite dishes is Pork Sinigang. I am quiet good at cooking it. There are a thousand and one ways of making sinigang. Here, I will share to you my husband's way of doing it (which is slightly different from the way I do it).

You will need...

1 & 1/2 Kgs pork ribs, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
10-15 pieces tamarind (may be substituted with 1 packet sinigang tamarind powdered mix)
4-5 cups water (depends how much you want or need it)
3 medium-sized radish, chopped into medium cubes
1 medium piece tomato (optional)
1 regular bunch kangkong leaves (the soft parts of the stalk included)
salt and pepper corns to taste
1 tablespoon sugar

Let's cook...

Boil the tamarind with the meat until the meat is tender.
Remove the seeds of the tamarind. If you use the tamarind powder mix(which is easier to find than real tamarind) dissolve it in a glass of water but add it later when the pork is already tender.
If you like it really sour you may use up all the contents of the small packet.
But if you want it to be just lightly sour you can add just half or a little more of the powder.
Add salt, pepper corns and sugar to taste.
Add the vegetables except the leaves , cook on medium heat until half cooked.
Add the rest of the vegetables (tomatoes and kangkong leaves).
Let it boil.
Serve while hot.

3-4 Servings.
