Humba (Braised Pork Belly) Filipino Dish Recipe

Another Filipino Dish that I love-love-love, did I say LOVE to eat. I would eat this everyday of the week if my cholesterol would let me. LOL!

This dish is called Humba (Braised Pork Belly) is one of the comfort foods in every Filipino household. It's a popular filipino food dish somewhere in the Visayas and Mindanao regions (I knew it because I used to lived there). I don't know how they called it in the Luzon region, but I knew they have a version of humba too. This dish is sometimes used to make Siopao, but that's a different blog I have to post.

OK! You need to cute the pork this small or if you prefer them bigger, it's fine too.

You will need about 3 bay leaves.

Whole black peppercorn



Brown sugar

Soy sauce

Mix well and cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge
for 3 hours or more to marinade.

When it's ready to cook, place on a deep enough pot and boil and turn the heat down to simmer till the liquid is almost gone and the meat is tender.

Here's the recipe so you can make it as well :-)

1 lb. any pork you want, I used the think pork chop
3 bay leaves
1.2 tsp. whole peppercorns
1/3 cup vinegar
6 gloves of garlic, chopped
4 tsp. brown sugar
4 tbsp. soy sauce

Cut meat from the bone and cut into small pieces.
Mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl and marinate the meat in this mixture for about 3 hours. Then transfer to a large enough pot with cover. Boil and turn the heat down to simmer till the liquid is almost gone and the meat is tender. You can add the hard boiled eggs during this process. Serve over hot rice and enjoy.

Rainbow Pancake Recipe

Doesn't it look pretty? I thought so too. I made this because I was inspired the rainbow cake, which I saw at Whisk Kid's site.  I made that rainbow cake too, remember? Everyone loved that cake. It was too pretty to eat but, we did. You betcha! I was so inspired by the rainbow cake that I had to make pancakes as well. If the kids enjoyed the cake so much, why not color other things too. So rainbow pancake it is.

There's no recipe to share since I just use a regular Bisquick batter, but I added 2 tablespoon of sugar. Ahh heck I will share the dang recipe. It's so much easier than explaining and it would take as much time. So, recipe on the bottom. You can keep reading this while contemplating if you want to make some rainbow pancake for the kids or for yourself OR be ballsy and make the rainbow cake instead. Come on now, I know you can do it :-) Both will taste good, so it doesn't matter which one you make.

Are ya licking the screen yet? I hope not. LOL! I'm telling it's finer lickin' good :-)

Here's what you need:
  • 2 cups Original Bisquick Mix
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract 
  • Food coloring (I used gel, the color appears bolder)
What to do:
  1. Stir all ingredients until blended. Divide the batters evenly, depends on how many colors you wanted.  I didn't have an exact measurement on how much batter is divided. I just separated 5 batters in each bowl and color. The more color you but it the brighter the pancake gets. ** Don't put too much or you will have a bitter batter pancake. (Say that 5 times fast).
  2. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375°F; grease with cooking spray, vegetable oil or shortening. (Surface is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it dance and disappear.)  Pour by slightly less than 1/4 cupfuls onto hot griddle or however you want them to be.
  3. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until golden.
  4. ENJOY!!!
