Binagoongang Baboy with talong or Pork in sautéed Shrimp Paste with Eggplant
Binagoongang Baboy or pork in sautéed shrimp paste is a Filipino dish that's very popular. It is delicious especially if you squeezed some calamansi or lemon on it and eat it with some steamed rice and some steamed vegetables ( okra,bokchoy and green beans). This dish is salty, sour, sweet, spicy and rich so if you are watching your salt intake , blood pressure and cholesterol this is not for you. Beware also that it has a very strong smell that to some people it is too overwhelming. I guess it depends how it's prepared. In my case I use plenty of onion, garlic ,tomatoes and to lessen the saltiness and cholesterol, I normally add some eggplant so it's not all the shrimp paste and meat. Plus we always have some steamed vegetables when we eat it ..Oh and the 1 to 2 head of garlic is good for blood pressure.
