Bicol Express Recipe

These past few days, I have been craving for Bicol Express. So when we went to the market this morning, I bought 5 pesos worth of alamang, coconut milk for 20 pesos and siling pangsigang which costs 2 pieces for Php1.50. We have some pork liempo at home so I'm not sure what it costs. In this recipe I just used two slices of liempo and I think it is around 1/4 kilo but I'm just making an estimate. :) I really love to eat Bicol Express but I don't like it hot, so today we cooked something which may not be considered as Bicol Express at all! Of course, if you like it hot or extra hot, you can just add some chili peppers or siling labuyo.
Bicol Express
Here are the ingredients I used:

1/4 kilo of Pork Liempo, cut into strips
1 tbsp Cooking Oil
2-3 Cloves of Garlic, minced
1 piece Medium Onion, diced
1 tsp Ginger, chopped
1/4 cup Alamang
1 cup Coconut Milk
3/4 cup Water
2 pieces Siling Pangsigang


Heat pan and add cooking oil.
Saute garlic, onion and ginger.
Add pork and cook until it turns light brown.  Around 7 minutes.
Add alamang and cook for about 2 minutes.
Pour in coconut milk and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Add water and simmer until meat is tender.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Add siling pangsigang / siling labuyo if you like it hoooottt!!
Remove from pan.

Serve with hot rice and eat with someone special. <3

I hope you will love this recipe! Let me know how it turns out!
