Tokwa't Baboy sa Taosi (Pork and Tofu in Black Beans)

  • pork, cut into cubes
  • tofu, cut into cubes
  • taosi (black beans)
  • kinchay, chopped
  • garlic, diced
  • onion, diced
  • oil
  • water
  • soy sauce (if you find the need to put some)
  • Fry the cubed tofu until golden brown or until it is cooked to your liking.
  • Saute the garlic and onion on the same oil where you cooked the tofu.
  • Add the pork, saute it until the meat is (a little) seared.
  • Add the taosi (black beans) as well as its juice, saute for a minute or two.
  • Add some water (according to your preference), cover the wok and let it boil for at least 5 minutes or until the pork is tender.
  • Taste it, if you think it is not salty enough, add some soy sauce. Simmer for a minute.
  • Put the chopped kinchay and the previously fried tofu, incorporate all the ingredients, cover and, again, simmer for a minute.
  • Plate and garnish with some fresh kinchay. Best eaten with a steaming cup of rice.
Easy does it. Happy eating!
