Hungry Pinay Cooks Pork Binagoongan (Pork With Shrimp Paste)

Pork binagoongan is so flavorful that makes you want to indulge in rice. You can't enjoy this dish with no or less rice. If you serve this, make sure you've cooked more rice than the usual.

Pork binagoongan is a personal fave. So, I learn to cook the way I want it. I don't want to disappoint myself, of course 😀

Back in my Ortigas days, when I used to work in a corporate office, I would take my lunch early when I see this on the menu. The pork binagoongan I used to eat has gata (coconut milk) in it that makes it creamy and a little oily. I love that version too. 

My version of pork binagoongan is salty and sweet. I didn't add vinegar to the dish because the shrimp paste I bought is not that salty anyway. Though, most of the recipes add a little vinegar. Pork binagoongan
