Tokwa at Baboy


Pork and Deep Fried Tofu. Not exactly a healthy appetizer to start with but hey, 'tis the season to indulge. Filipinos (or my family's tradition anyway)usually wait for midnight to have dinner on Christmas Eve. Being used to having dinner around 6 pm, our tummies were grumbling and could not stand the wait. I had a few leftover pork slices from the parties weve been to and I put them in the freezer for situations like this one. I knew the stores were going to be closed before 6pm on the 24th so I made sure that I bought what I needed. I anticipated that one of these days, I can use some tofu and so I bought the fried ones already.

Tokwa't baboy goes well with any drink. We call it pulutan in the Philippines. It was a hit amongst my family and my friend.

Preparing this required the least effort on my part. The pork slices were already boiled so I just had to reheat them. The Tofu came in, deep fried already and so I just reheated them in the pan, sliced. With about 2/3 cup of soy sauce, 1/3 cup of vinegar, thinly sliced onions, 2 tbsp of sugar and some slices of chili mixed in a bowl, I added the pork slices and the tofu ones they were warm.

I served it with gusto.

You know what? That looks good. It looks good because it looks warm and salty, and I love salt. I love salt more than any human rightfully should.

Ting-Aling, after all the very rich and filling food during Christmas, tokwa't baboy for me is the perfect dish to get rid of the "suya". Ang sarap naman... Anyway, wishing you the best for the coming new year. Happy New Year Ting-Aling!

Hi Fanatic. The soy sauce was a dipping sauce. You had to fish out the meat and the deep fried tofu out of the sauce. We do not consume the soy sauce entirely...but still lots of salt. Thanks for the visit.
