Pork Binagoongan is a traditional Filipino dish where you cook pork with tomato and shrimp paste. It’s a nice dish with plenty of flavors and would be a favorite for anyone that likes fairly salty dishes. With the addition of the coconut milk, it gives this dish an added flavor and aroma. Overall it’s an easy recipe that anyone can try, serve with plenty of white rice which compliments the dish very well.
