that's why walang kalabasa,madi ag-kebbet ti karabasa(bunga)talbos(ubbot) o bulaklak(sabong)pwede,lahat ng gulay pwedeng ihalo.
that's how we cook in batac,ilocos norte.
First, we boil pork (liempo) cut into pcs in small amount of water until it dries up and fat comes out, then we saute garlic in it and it is set aside, then we will mixed all the ingredients in one clay pot / casserole (tomato,onion,ginger,eggplant,okra,string beans,ampalaya then the suated garlic with pork is put on top together with fish bagoong) then add a little bit of water. then put to boil then it is not stirred but hence it is stirred by shaking the pot securing the contents inside until its properly mixed.
And FYI "pinakbet" itself means "pinakebbet" which in english means "shrunken" vegetables. And this my friends is the proper way to cook pakbet.
make my grade 90%....
