Slow Cooked Pinapaitan Recipe

With all the craziness of being a Blogger, a Virtual Assistant, a Web Designer, plus stay at home mom with no help or yaya, plus homeschool duties, friends are asking, how am I able to cope with all of that?

Well, I admit, my house is not spic and span, that’s my first concession, plus enforcing chores for the kids, it helps. But you know what helps the most? Technology. I rely on a lot of slow cooking and meal planning.

Like this Pinapaitan for example. I bought the ingredients last weekend, then it was raining so hard yesterday and I thought that Papaitan would be perfect for dinner.

I defrosted the meats overnight then cooked it in the slow cooker in the morning. By dinner it was glorious!

Don’t have a slow cooker yet? Read here why you should buy one! If you’re a working mom, this is perfect for you. You can set it up in the morning and come home to a wonderfully smelling home with your dinner already cooked!

Remember, I do easy? This recipe uses a Papaitan mix!

Here’s the recipe!

Ingredients:

5 garlic cloves

2 tbsp vinegar

2 knob of ginger (smashed)

1 sachet of Mama Sita Papaitan Mix

6 cups of water (or hugas bigas)

spring onion (optional)

  2. Saute onions, garlic, and ginger.
  3.  Add tripe and beef and patis then saute 3-5 minutes. Add green chili. If you want it spicier you can also add chili flakes.

  7. Serve and top with spring onions.

Notes: For leftover and you find that you don’t have enough soup left, try adding water and any sinigang mix. #protip Also, a true blue pinapaitan would include innards and liver. However, I don’t have access to these but feel free to add them if you want!

Enjoy!
