I had a dream the other night....
It was about Pata Tim...
I could vividly picture it in my mind.... Jiggly skin of the Pata.... Sweet salty sauce... Steamed broccoli and carrots.
My family liked the Pata Tim I cooked last Saturday for lunch.
Kuya asked me to cook for him again today.
1.2-1.5 K . Pork Pata
1/3 C. Coconut Brand soy sauce
3 T. Marcia Piña cooking wine
1/3 C. Brown sugar
2 stalks leeks, white part only
6 thick slices of ginger
3 C. Water
2 T. Cornstarch + 2 T. Water.
Steamed broccoli and carrots.
Combine all the ingredients except the cornstarch in a pressure cooker and cook for 1 hour.
Remove the leeks and ginger and continue cooking until the sauce has reduced to about a cup.
Remove the Pata, transfer into a serving platter. Arrange the broccoli and carrot around the Pata.
Add the cornstarch slurry to the sauce. When it thickens slightly, pour over the Pata.
