Pata and Beans is a Filipino dish inspired by the baked and beans dish, but instead of just using beans and a bit of pork, this dish is loaded with tender melting fat and fall of the bone meat from pork hock.


  • 500 g white / navy beans, soaked in water overnight
  • 1 kg pork hock / pata, cut into sections
  • 1/2 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 400 ml can tomato puree
  • 4 cups beef stock
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • oil


  1. In a pot add oil then brown pork hock on all sides. Remove pork hock from pot then set it aside.
  2. Add the garlic and onions then sauté until fragrant, bring back pork hock into the pot together with all the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and simmer in low heat for 2 hrs or until beans and pork  are tender.  Check once in a while for liquid levels, add water if necessary.
