Humba Tacos Are A Total Yes

Recommended Posts

broden

so yesterday i mentioned for new years eve dinner one of the things we were having was humba tacos .. some filipino mexican fusion we came up with

 

man they are good .. real good.. gonna have more today and my wife also plans to sometime very soon make more humba to replace the meat in gyros or shawarmas .. both really i expect those will be very good too

 

she made a very large amount of humba yesterday ... very tender.. and over night we let it sit in it's juices in the slow cooker set on super low so it is even more tender now.. shreds at the touch and very well seasoned 

 

 

we both looked at each other last night after we took a couple of bites and say almost together

 

yup this is going in to regular rotation

humba is generally a pork dish (we have done it with beef to though at times).. one of those filipino dishes that everyone eats but every family makes a bit differently but still recognizably

 

my wife is still sleeping so i don't have her recipe but think along the lines of adobo with just a touch of sweet to it

Well that describes about every cut of pork I have found here. Lol

 

But I just did a ham slice in the crock pot with peppers and homemade green sauce..served over rice for my girls..wasn't half bad.

did not feel like cooking (two bad football games) last night so we sliced some cold ham and put on dinner rolls with spicy mustard and peppers plus cookies, fresh fruit and watch the New Years come in on TV ....  stayed up till after 2 am to watch the celebrations from the East Coast to the West Coast, USA ... while watching highlights from around the world...  other than than the two suck ass football games ...a nice quiet New Years at home with family....

I make adobo with pork here in Cebu, but I don't use the adobo cut because there is too much fat.  I pay a little more for the pork cubes.  I like to put a few peppers in it, don't like the sweet taste of humba.  When I make it with beef I put some potatoes in it.

I have always eaten humba wrapped in a tortilla. Best way to eat it.

This is our recipe for it...

¼ cup Brown sugar

2 large Bay leaf (Loral leaf)

1 tsp Black Pepper (whole-the round seed type)

ohh measurements.. my wife doesn't use them for this dish so 

 

balsamic vinegar .. my wife has found in her years in the states that she likes it better with this than white vinegar

brown sugar .. not tons probably 2 tablespoons give or take

filipino soy sauce

salt

pepper corns

water

pork 

if you like some msg if not no problem

crushed fresh garlic

 

 

she really just eyeballs with this dish.. but i could probably get her to give actual measurements if i told her how much meat.. but she's kinda busy right now so i just wanted a basic list of ingredients

 

 

oh i forgot to add .. she said.. " and simmer simmer simmer simmer"

Yeah, that Humba recipe of pork and or shredded beef with re-fried beans with Spanish rice, tomato/green onion salsa, Jalapeno peppers, cilantro and sour cream would do nicely warped in a steamed soft wheat tortilla as a burrito or a deep fried hard corn taco shell! Grrrrrrreat! Thanks for the remainder! Now it's making me hungry for tacos or burritos!
