CREAMY PORK MUSHROOM RECIPE

Ingredients:

  • 1 kilo pork belly slices (or kasim)
  • 250 ml all purpose cream (or any cooking cream)
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • 5 cloves of garlic (chopped)
  • 1 medium onion (chopped)

  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons calamansi juice (or lemon juice)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 piece pork broth cube
  • Spring onions (for garnish)

Directions:

  1. Wash and prepare the pork belly slices. Cut them into serving pieces then arrange them into a container. Season them with salt and pepper. Add the calamansi juice and massage them well. Let the meat marinate for at least 15 minutes or overnight.
  2. Heat a pan using high heat setting. Add the pork slices (no oil) and sear them for a few minutes until golden brown and the oil starts to render. Flip to cook the other side. Do this with the rest of the pork slices. Drain excess oil using a strainer or paper towel and then set aside.
  3. Remove the oil from the pan and melt the butter. Add the minced garlic and onions  and saute for a few minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook until soft.
  4. Add the seared pork back to the pan and toss gently to saute well.
  5. Add the pork broth cube, soy sauce and a cup of water. Mix gently. Cover the pan and let it cook for 15 minutes using medium heat.
  6. After 15 minutes, add the all purpose cream. Lower the heat to prevent the cream from curdling. Stir until each piece is well coated. Let this cook for 5 – 7 more minutes until the sauce becomes thick and creamy. Turn the heat off.
  7. Transfer the creamy pork mushroom to a serving plate. Enjoy this with a lot of hot steaming rice. Yum!

SHROOM YOUR DISH WITH MUSHROOMS

Since the discovery that mushrooms are edible and are safe for consumption, people started enjoying mushrooms in different dishes all over the world. Out of more than 14000 varieties of mushrooms, only around 20 of them are considered flavorful and are used for culinary purposes. Aside from being an ingredient, some mushrooms are also used for medicinal purposes.

Some of the most popular edible mushrooms include shiitake, button mushrooms, enoki, giant puffball and many more. Among them, we most commonly see the button mushrooms used as a gravy flavor mostly for steaks (especially our fave Jollibee’s burger steak!).

Economically, mushrooms are considered as vegetables because of their nutritional value. But scientifically, mushrooms are considered fungi (but not the bad fungi!). Did you know that a 100 grams of mushrooms is only 22 calories? Mushrooms are rich in proteins, antioxidants and fiber. Aside from their added flavor to a dish, they also provide additional nutritional benefits.

CREAMY PORK MUSHROOM

With the rise of the korean food culture in the Philippines, of course we’ll go with the trends. Ever since I was introduced to the concept of samgyupsal, I always make sure that I have a stash of sliced pork belly in my fridge, just waiting for my Friday k-drama night.

I used to make samgyup but ran out of gochujang. Instead of having a boring samgyupsal, I decided to cook my pork belly slices in a saucy way, so that I won’t need any sauce. I spotted my cream in the fridge and that instantly screamed “creamy pork!” to me. And what’s the next big thing after cream? Mushrooms!

If you wanna know how to make some creamy pork mushrooms, read and follow the simple steps below. Happy cooking!

HOW TO MAKE CREAMY PORK MUSHROOM

Making some creamy pork mushroom is super easy and straightforward. If you have tried making any creamy dishes in the past, then this recipe will be super easy for you.

Lets start with the pork belly. You can also try using other pork cuts if you like. Start by searing the pork slices in a hot pan. Searing greatly adds flavor to the dish and locks the juices and flavors inside the pork. No need to add any oil since the pork will render its own as it cooks. This step is super easy, especially when you cook samgyupsal a lot!

When the pork is done, time to make the creamy sauce. To infuse the mushroom flavor, saute them together with the aromatics. For this recipe, I used the button canned mushrooms for convenience. Add the pork back to the pan and saute them altogether.

Add the rest of the seasonings. Before adding the cream, remember to lower the heat. Milks and creams are very easy to burn. Do a taste test and adjust the flavors. Cook them for a few more minutes and just wait until all the ingredients come together.

I really love my creamy pork mushrooms on top of a big bowl of hot steaming rice or with lettuce and all the samgyup side dishes. Yum!
