What You'll Need
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup pork bones with meat
  • 250 grams pork liver
  • 250 grams pork intestines
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon shrimp paste
  • toasted garlic
  • chopped leek
  • crushed chicharon
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 piece shrimp broth cubes
  • 250 grams pancit miki
  1. In a deep cooking pot, put water, and pork bones. Cover and bring into a boil over medium fire. Let it boil for about 30 minutes or until the pork becomes tender.
  2. Once the meat is tender, add pork liver and intestines, salt and pepper. Let it boil for about 10 minutes. Remove the bubbles that would appear in the mixture.
  3. Add onion powder, shrimp paste, shrimp broth cube and sugar. Let it boil for 10 more minutes until all the flavors are fully incorporated to the broth.
  4. Remove the liver, intestines and pork meat from the boiling broth. Chop them into strips and place into different serving plates.
