Bicol Express is a popular Filipino dish in which the slices of pork meat is cooked with coconut milk, shrimp paste, and chili pepper. There’s a belief that this dish was adapted from a Bicolano recipe called “Gulay na may Lada,” meaning ‘vegetable with chili.’ Their main difference is quite pronounced: Bicol Express uses pork while “Gulay na may Lada” uses the only vegetable.

How to Make Bicol Express:

  1. Heat a pan and then pour-in the cooking oil.
  2. Sauté the garlic, onion, and ginger
  3. Add the pork and then continue cooking for 5 to 7 minutes or until the color becomes light brown
  4. Put-in the shrimp paste and Thai chili or Serrano pepper. Stir.
  5. Pour the coconut milk in. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 40 minutes or until the pork is tender
  6. Add salt and ground black pepper to taste
  7. Serve Hot. Enjoy!
