Tokwa't Baboy (Tofu and Pork)

Here in the Philippines, most Filipinos love to eat this appetizer/pica-food/viand. One time my hubby requested that I make my own version of Tokwa't Baboy. Here's what you need and how I made it.


1/2K Pork (pork chop)
1 block of special tofu (bought from the supermarket)
5 pieces of green chili pepper - sliced thinly
2 medium onion bulbs - chopped
5 cloves of garlic - crushed
vinegar to taste
soy sauce to taste
5 tablespoons sugar
ground black pepper
1/2 cup of water
5 tablespoons of cooking oil.

How I made it:

First off, I cooked the pork chop adobo style. Boil the pork in 1/2 cup of water, soy sauce (depends on how salty you want it), vinegar (also depends on how sour you want to make it),
with the crushed garlic, 1 onion bulb, black pepper, 5 tablespoons sugar and 3 pieces of the sliced green chili pepper. Boil it until the pork becomes tender. Set aside the sauce to make the dip. Once it's tender, dice the pork and make small cubes and then fry it in the pre-heated oil.

Wash the tofu with running water, dice it and fry it until golden brown.

Toss the fried tofu, pork, the rest of the green chili pepper and the fresh onion bulb in a bowl. Top it off with the the sauce from the boiled pork. Season it to taste. There you have it, a quick and easy pica-food. It goes well with many of the availale beverage out there.
