1 large pork pata, sliced (preferrably front leg)
1 cup beer
½ cup dried banana blossoms, cleaned and soaked
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 small laurel leaf
½ cup vinegar
Salt, soy sauce and pepper to taste
6 pieces saba banana, fried
Brown sugar to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Wash and clean pata and transfer in a deep pot. Pour beer and enough water to cover the pata. Let it boil and simmer for about 2 1/2 hours or until it becomes tender. Remove any scums that will float.
Add the rest of the ingredients, except for the saba or sliced bananas. Continue to cook for a few more minutes. Add sliced bananas and simmer for 5 minutes more. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Turn off heat. Serve and enjoy!
