how to make batchoy

i really should write more about the filipino food that i cook.

i made batchoy for the first time the other day… and boy was it good! the entire thing was cooked old-school style so i don’t know any exact measurements. it was just adding the ingredients in there until it tastes the way i know it should taste. i used:

-pork (cut into small cubes)

-half an onion

-several cloves of garlic

-black pepper


-fish sauce



-several table spoons of pork blood

-misua noodles

  1. first i sauteed the onion and garlic
  2. in the meantime, boil the pork in a separate pot until cooked. keep the broth.
  3. add the pork into the onion and garlic and continue sauteeing, adding fish sauce, pepper and salt
  4. add the pork broth and let simmer.
  5. take 3 teaspoons of the pork blood and add it in. it will solidify in the batchoy.
  6. add the cilantro and the misua noodles
