Pork Ribs Nilaga – On rainy days, one dish that comes to mind is pork ribs nilaga. The word nilaga means boiled meat and vegetables. This recipe is similar to the chicken nilaga  recipe I posted a few months ago. The only difference is in the kind of meat used. What I love about this dish is it has meat and vegetables such as potatoes, green beans, and cabbage. I also add saba  whenever it is available.

You can prepare this dish by initially boiling the pork ribs in water. Once the meat is tender, add the seasonings and vegetables. Serve in a bowl and you have a delicious pork ribs nilaga  which you can enjoy for lunch or supper.
