Humbadobo Recipe


  • 1kg pork belly (liempo), cut into cubes
  • 3/4 cup peanuts, skinned and toasted (or salted black beans)
  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 pcs bay leaf
  • 1 tsp peppercorns, crushed
  • salt, to taste


  1. In a pot, put the liempo and water (just enough to cover the meat). Bring to a boil.
  2. Once boiling, remove the scum and lower the heat.
  3. Add the garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, bay leaf, and peppercorns.
  4. Simmer until the pork is tender.
  5. When the cooking liquid has evaporated, leaving just about less than a cup, stir once in a while to avoid burning the bottom. Wait until the pork renders its own fat then skim it off again.
  6. Add the peanuts and then season according to your preference.
  7. Serve and enjoy your humbadobo!
