Filipino friends, please let me know what you like in your sinigang in the comments!
I got so many request for this recipe, and I am very happy about that because it’s one of my favourite Filipino dishes! I remember the first time having it and thinking “it’s like the Filipino tom yum!” Sinigang is a sour soup, owing its sour flavour from tamarind. With lots of veggies and hearty pork ribs, this is the perfect healthy winter dish.
Nowadays, most people make sinigang using a powdered soup mix, but I make mine completely from scratch and you’ll see that it’s really not any more difficult! Change up with protein if you don’t eat pork, as sinigang can be made with any kind of protein. Change up the veggies, too, if you like!
