“This is a Filipino recipe. A friend of ours made it for us when he came to visit. We found the recipe in either the Seattle P-I or Journal American newspaper about 15 years ago, which we've since lost, but my husband remembered it and over time we've adapted it to fit our tastes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the pork into 2-3 inch pieces.
  2. Mix the water, sugar and soy sauce in a large frying pan. Add the bay leaf and bring it up to medium high heat.
  3. Lay pork pieces in the sauce, cover and cook on medium (keep it low enough that the sauce doesn’t boil over; adding additional small amounts of water and soy if needed.) Cook for 10-15 minutes and flip the pork, cooking an additional 10 -15 minutes until done which will depend on the thickness of the pork.
  4. Serve the pork over a bed of rice, removing the bay leaf, drizzling the sauce over it and seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
