Filipino Pork Sinigang Recipe

Filipino Pork Sinigang


Pork sinigang is a hearty Filipino soup made of rich pork bones and ribs balanced by tangy lemon juice and filled with taro, shrimp, and bok choy.


  • 2 ½ pounds pork neck bones
  • 2 pounds pork spareribs
  • water to cover
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 ½ onions, quartered
  • 2 tomatoes, quartered, or more to taste
  • 1 taro, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 pound bok choy, chopped
  • 1 large leek, chopped
  • 5 head-on shrimp


  1. Place pork neck bones and spareribs in a stockpot with water to cover. Add salt and bring to a boil, skimming the fat off the surface of the broth. Reduce heat; add onions, tomatoes, and taro. Boil until pork meat is very tender, 30 to 40 minutes.
  2. Stir lemon juice and fish sauce into the broth. Continue boiling until flavors come together, about 15 minutes. Add bok choy, leek, and shrimp. Cover, reduce heat, simmer until shrimp are opaque and bok choy is tender, about 10 minutes more.
