Pata hamonado or Sticky Sweet Pork Hock is a type of stew where pork hocks are slowly braised in a soy sauce and pineapple juice base infused with lots of garlic. It might look similar to another Filipino dish called Patatim but this dish have a hint of freshness and tang due to the use of pineapple juice in the simmering process. This dish was named after a closely related dish called Hamon (Pineapple Glazed Pork Leg Ham) due to its similarity in some components of the dish like the use of pork leg and pineapple juice.
I love love this dish. I prefer it when someone else cooks it for me – mas masarap! But now you’ve inspired me to try. Thanks for the recipe, will surely try it!
Looking at the photo just makes my mouth water. Thank you for the recipe – I can easily (and GLADLY) make it, as every ingredient is easy to find here.
I think we have a pork hock or two in the freezer. Now I know just what to do!
I really shouldn’t catch-up on my blog reading when I’m hungry. This looks SOOOO good Raymund! 🙂
This ham is making me hungry. This is breakfast time but if I had this dish in front of me I’d not mind at all to eat it for breakfast. 🙂
Does this recipe require fresh or smoked pork hocks, looks delicious.
You can use any but the smoked bacon hocks tastes better
