- 1 kilo Pork Belly, cut into cubes
- 6 cups Water
- 8 cloves Garlic, chopped
- 1 piece Onion, chopped
- 4 piece Tomatoes, diced
- 2 - 3 Tablespoons Sinigang Mix
- 1 cup Diced Squash
- 10 pieces Okras, cut into 1 inch long
- 10 pieces Yard Long Beans, cut into 3 inch long
- 1 piece Green Long Chili
- 2 cups Malunggay Leaves

Thoroughly clean the pork. Place pork in a pot and pour water until all the pork meats are covered with water. Boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain and rinse thoroughly with tap water to remove scums.
Place back the pork into the pot and add the six cups of water, garlic, onion and tomatoes. Boil and simmer until the pork is tender. This may take 45 minutes to an hour depending on your meat.
Mash the tomatoes using the back of your wooden spoon. Add the sinigang mix and squash. Simmer for another 15 minutes or until the squash is cooked.
Add the okras and simmer for 3 minutes.
Add the yard long beans and green long chili and simmer for 5 minutes or until the beans are cooked.
Lastly, add the malunggay leaves and season with fish sauce. Switch off the heat and cover the pan for 5 minutes for the leaves to cook.
