Mely's Kitchen Bicol Express

Bicol express is one of the popular dishes in the Philippines. It was named after one region in the Philippines which this dish originated (Bicol).

 Here in South America different kinds of chillis are available all year round, that's why my imagination was stirred when I saw a chili shop at the market, I said Bicol Express!!Here are some chilis that I've used for this recipe.


1/2 kilo pork
1 tablespoon shrimp paste ( bagoong)
1 onion
5 cloves of garlic
1 1/2 cup coconut milk
different chili
dash of ground pepper and salt

1. Saute garlic and onion then add the different chili and saute for a minute.
2. Add the meat, simmer until it is tender then add the shrimp paste , stir for a minute..
3. Put a dash of salt and ground pepper, cover it and simmer for 3 minutes.
4. Add the coconut milk, let it boil then turn off the heat.
5. Serve it with rice.
