Foodie Goodie | Pork Binagoongan.

After a week of eating nothing but fish, it's a relief to have pork on the menu again! Today, my kitchen brings you Pork Binagoongan (aka Pork with Shrimp Paste).

If you've noticed, I don't use siling labuyo (bird's eye pepper) because the little man might find it too spicy for his taste. 

And I don't cook mine with coconut cream. That would be Bicol Express to me.

Here's how I made my Pork Binagoongan.


300g pork cutlets; cut in serving pieces
1/4 cup shrimp bagoong 
4 cloves garlic; minced
1 small onion; chopped
1 medium tomato; sliced 
3 tablespoon vinegar 
1/2 tablespoon sugar 
1 eggplant; cut in slices


1. Boil pork until tender. Set aside.
2. Sauté garlic, onion, and tomatoes. 
3. Add pork and shrimp bagoong. 
4. Stir fry for few minutes until pork begins to release fat, and edges turn to brown. 
5. Add vinegar, simmer for 5 minutes. 
6. Add the eggplant and sugar. Season to your liking.
7. Continue cooking in low fire until the eggplant is done. 


  1. i would love to try this! the ones that i tasted have coconut milk in them... :)

    appreciate much your sharing over at Food Friday, Czjai

  2. Yummy! Love this. Too bad I don't seldom cook bagoong now; watching for hubby's salt intake :-( Pero OK lang naman kahit paminsan-minsan.

  3. Yum, nothing like an awesome pork binagoongan after holy week, this looks delicious!

  4. Hindi ko pa naluluto yan. But the procedure seems easy, I easily get intimidated whenever I have to cook and use two separate pans. One-pot labo labo lang ako haha...

  5. we're all thinking about pork right after Lent. LOL i posted pork, too.:p
    we seldom have this at home, too, due to my mom's high blood pressure.

  6. Another binagoongan pork this is my weakness forget the diet. ^_^

  7. Oh I miss pork binagoongan...dito kasi sa davao, walang nagluluto ng ganyan...makaluto nga..hehe Visiting from FTF.

  8. Ever since I moved to Canada, which was 17 years ago, I haven't had a really good plate of authentic binagoongan!I should try making this on my own! I mostly cook many different kinds of foods for my blog, but rarely Filipino. Perhaps, it may be time to change all that...

  9. I made something similar, with napa cabbage instead of eggplant.

  10. obviously very mouth-watering..but too bad, i don't eat pork :(
