Paksiw na Pata Batangas Style is a type of paksiw where pork leg and knuckles are cooked in a simple mixture of vinegar, garlic and onions.


  • 1.5 kg pork leg, sliced into sections
  • 1/2 cup cane vinegar
  • 1 head garlic, whole sliced in half crosswise
  • 2 medium sized red onions, quartered
  • 3 tbsp peppercorns
  • 3 pcs bay leaf
  • 3 pcs green chillies
  • fish sauce
  • water


  1. In a pot add the pork leg and enough water to cover it. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
  2. Drain the pot and rinse the pork leg removing any scum. Clean the pot as well if necessary.
  3. Bring back the pork leg together garlic, peppercorn and bay leaf into the pot. Add enough water just to barely cover the pork leg, bring to a boil then simmer in low heat for 45 minutes. Check for water level once in a while and don’t let it dry out.
  4. Add the green chillies, vinegar, red onions and fish sauce to taste, continue to simmer for 30 more minutes or until pork is really tender.
  5. Serve with hot rice.
