pinakbet or pakbet is an ilokano dish from the northern regions of the philippines, but popular throughout the archipelago. fry pork until brown and crunchy. add garlic and onions and saute. add tomatoes. add shrimp and stir ocassionaly.
Pinakbet added 2 tbsp of shrimp paste, almost 3, had to wait for a long time for the squash to become tender and kept on adding water so mine was a little watered down. no ampalaya for me. i only had okra, maybe add sitaw next time!
