Sinigang Na Baboy (Filipino Pork Soup)

Updated on July 19, 2012

My mom always knew what to make me when I not feeling well or on a rainy day. This soup is the cure to anything that you are feeling especially hangovers. My husband loves it when I make this soup for him when he is feeling under the weather and now I want to pass it to you. I promise that this is better than Chicken noodle soup

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 1 hour
Ready in: 1 hour 15 min
Yields: Serves 4-6


  • 1 lbs Boneless Country Style Ribs or Pork Shoulder, Chopped
  • 1 Large Onion, Chopped
  • 4 Cups Water
  • 2 Packets Tamarind also know and Sampalok (Knorr or Mama Cita Brand), Can be found in any asian or filipino store
  • 2 Bunches Chinese Bok Choy, Chop off majority of white part or to your liking
  • 2 Large Tomatoes, Finally chopped preserving juice
  • 2 med Potatoes (preferbly red), cubed
  1. Add chopped pork and 4 cups of water to large pot and boil till the meat is half way cooked. 10-15 minutes.
  2. After meat is half way cooked start off with adding only 1 packet of the tamarind and continue to add more to your liking but no more than 2 packets. To much tamarind will cause your soup to be too sour.
  3. After getting your soup taste to your liking add your chopped tomatoes and the juiced saved, along with everything else BUT the Bok Choy.
  4. Let cook about 45-50 minutes
  5. Add Bok Choy This soup taste best with a fresh pot of rice. So if you cook rice start it about 5 minutes prior to adding the bok choy so that way when your rice is done so is your soup.
  6. If you decide not to pair with rice just cook for another 15 minutes after you add the Bok Choy
