Pork sinigang is a pork sour soup recipe native to the Philippines. It is mixed with vegetables and tamarind to make the soup sour. Other souring agents may be used as well such as bilimbi fruit or kamias, guava, green mango, santol and calamansi.

I personally prefer pork ribs because the bones gives it a more tasteful broth.  Then you have your radish, eggplant, taro which is optional.  I just love to have the taro in it because it adds creaminess to the broth.  You may also add lady finger or okra and then your greens that is kangkong.  You may substitute kangkong with pechay, bok choi or even green cabbage if you want.
