    Pakbet is a delicious vegetable dish originated from the Ilocos region of the Philippines but popular across the country. This is one of my favorite Filipino vegetable dish, and here is my way of cooking it.

    Ingredients for 10 servings:
    1/2 kilo Squash
    1/4 kilo string beans
    1/4 kilo okra
    1/4 kilo eggplant
    1/4 kilo bitter melon ( ampalaya)
    3 cloves garlic
    1 onion
    1/4 kilo pork
    2 tablespoons shrimp paste
    2 cups water
    salt and pepper to taste

    1. Saute the garlic and onion then add the pork and saute until brownish then add the shrimp paaste and simmer for a minute, then add the water and bring to a boil.
    2. Add the squash  and string beans then simmer until half cooked.
    3. Add he rest of the ingredients and simmer until done.

    4. Serve it hot with rice.
