    Mango's?

    I didn't post this in the Dessert thread- mango's are good for so many other things. Our neighbor across the street has a mango tree and gave us a bag full the other day. So, I have been searching my mango recipes for something really good to do with them. I was wondering if anyone else likes mango's and would like some of the ideas I have come across. OR.....if you have any good ideas that you would like to share, would love to hear from you.

    Just came back from two weeks in Manilla--best mangoes in the world Other than just eating fresh (which I know can be tiresome), smoothies were really popular. Also, if you dehydrated slices, stores very well. Dipped in chocolate---mmm.

    Although I haven't tried this (your post caused me to search), I came across mango salsa, mango cheesecake (I'd do this in my IP ) , basically anything you would use any sort of fruit in

    Hi Len, welcome home. I hope you had a good time. Other than mango smoothies, what other good food did they serve you over there? I understand "Chicken Adobo with Ginger" is (or was) considered their national dish. Did you have any of this? I have 9 recipes for it. Also a good one for Pork Adobo, if interested.

    Thank you for the mango link. Some good stuff there. DH is making Pork Chops with Mango Sauce for dinner tonight. Can't wait. We also want to try your dehydrated slices dipped in chocolate. That sounds really good. Thanks for the idea. Keep them coming. lol

    Sisig is excellent https://m.huffingtonpost.ca/entry/wh...b0b13f2c68002e but every stall did it different; but one item I did not try was balut. You can look that one up

    Pork belly was ok but the way it was done was too fatty for me.

    Stayed away from street food as I needed to stay healthy this time.

    You may have missed this post I made while in coron:

    I didn't keep track but they were "native" concoctions though. Really, food is food. Maybe different spice "mixtures" but the same as here. Noodles, lots of seafood (fish, shrimp etc). Pork and chicken are by far the most popular . Lots of veggies. Not much beef if any. No dog or cat that I was aware of although those are more popular in say, Viet Nam.

    Thinking back, I wish I had taken pics of menus but didn't. But sometimes you want something familiar too. My daughter had pizza . When we were in Tahiti, we just had to have a McD burger & fries. I don't eat McD here at home but just wanted something I was familiar with and not experiment.

    When you look at Philipine recipes, they're really not all that different (other than maybe some odd ball ingredients.) I'm going to be making a chicken dish

    https://www.kawalingpinoy.com/filipi...becue-chicken/

    in preparation for guests (I've not made this before) but if you look at it, again it's just the combo of spices.

    If I come aross a PHP recipe that uses an odd ingredient, like most of us I would try to find a suitable substitute for it. That chicken recipe calls for calamansi juice (but then says you can sub lemon juice). Just one example.

    https://www.thelittleepicurean.com/2...nsi-juice.html

    For another example: Pad Thai. No respecting chef would use ketchup in but I've found some "authentic" recipes use it IMO. But those same recipes don't use tamarind. I consider tamarind one of the essentials in it. Go figger.

    Len, thanks for the recipe, I like the fact they use 1 head of garlic. I bet Key Lime Juice would be a great substitute. Please let us know how it turns out......Thanks again.

    DH did make the pork chops last night. They turned out to be pretty good. He made a couple of changes tho, will have to make again to see what it was suppose to really taste like. lol He used fresh mango * and guava fruit spread.* Almost forgot, he cubed the pork and put them on a skewer with onions and grilled them. (best part lol)

    Pork With Tropical Sauce

    4 boneless pork top loin chops, cut 1" thick
    salt and ground black pepper
    2 tsp. olive oil
    2 tsp. curry powder
    1 tsp. ground ginger
    1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
    1 cup snipped assorted dried tropical fruit *
    1/2 cup orange juice
    1 TB. cider vinegar
    2 TB. pineapple preserves *

    Preheat broiler. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper. Brush chops with oil. In a bowl, stir together curry, ginger and cinnamon. Remove and set aside 1 tsp. of the spice mixture. Rub remaining mixture over both sides of chops.

    Place chops on an unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4" from heat for 9 to 11 minutes, turning once, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in chops reads 160F.

    Meanwhile, for sauce, in a small saucepan, stir together fruit, orange juice, vinegar, and reserved spice mixture. Bring to boiling. Stir in preserves. Remove from heat and let stand, covered 5 minutes. Serve sauce over pork. Makes 4 servings

    I'd like to try that!

    Mangoes & bananas are a perfect pair - slice up a mango, add a banana & give that a try. Other fruits are good to add, but try mango+banana first.
