Paksiw na Pata (Braised Pork)

Paksiw na Pata is a simple Pinoy dish that my husband loves to eat on a regular basis. I add saba to the mixture aside from banana blossoms to add more color to the dull brown colors of the Paksiw.

Here is the Paksiw na Pata recipe:


1 large pata or pig’s feet (around 1 kilo)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 head garlic, crushed
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar (reduce if white sugar)
1/2 cup dried banana blossoms soaked in water
1 bay leaf
4 saba bananas, fried


1. Clean pata throughly. Boil in vinegar, water and garlic. (or you can use the pressure cooker)

2. Lower heat and simmer until pata is tender.

3. Add more water if needed.

4. Put in soy sauce, sugar, dried banana blossons, bay leaf and bananas.

5. Summer 5 minutes more. Serve hot.

It is a simple dish but it deserves to be shown only because I take pride in my helpers.

    Just went from the supermarket and unfortunately the meat section is already closed. I decided to look at the frozen section for what to cook thing (again) i found this Pata and started what can i do from it. Paksiw na pata came first into my mind but i haven’t tried one. Up to my flat open my laptop and now leaving this comment on your page 🙂 Viewed so many blogs and site about this recipe but this one caught my attention. It seems so authentic with labor of love if I may say.
    Gonna try this in a n hour! Thanks for recipe and hi to Diding!

    I felt hungry by the time I read the recipe. Introduction is not of interest but the recipe itself. Peace.

    i admire that the main reason that you put this recipe here was bcz ur helper made it, even if you found the recipe as simple. i was looking for easy recipes that my helper can prepare, bcz she only knows sinigang, nilaga, tinola pininyahan an fried stuff. sometimes my kids get so tired of it, they beg me to be the one to cook during my days off. this is definitely one recipe that she’ll be cooking this week. 🙂
