Pata con Setas is a Spanish inspired Filipino dish prepared with pork hock and chorizo slowly cooked on tomato bases sauce
Who does not love Spanish inspired dishes, the sofrito on tomato based sauce on meat or vegetables is a flavour that is so comforting, the natural sweetness with the tang of tomatoes is such a flavour that you will never get tired of. Our dish for today Pata con Setas is using those Spanish elements but it is even enhanced with more flavours from chorizo alongside slowly stewed pork leg, the result is such a pleasure in your mouth, the flavours and textures defines what a comfort meal should be.
There are a lot of pata dishes back home and all of it has that comfort dish qualities, I love them all, most probably it is the texture of the pork leg fat and the tendons when slowly simmered makes it very addictive. From Kare-kareng Pata , Paksiw na Pata, Pata Hamonado and Patatim you can’t go wrong, so if you love food textures and flavours like then I highly suggest you should try this one out.
