All of you most probably would agree that Pampanga has the best dishes compared to other provinces that is why most of the popular Filipino dishes that won the Pinoys palate came from this region, dishes like sisig, kadereta, lechon, afritada, menudo and tocino to name some. Having said that dishes from other regions are not bad but Kapampangan cuisine is just a crowd pleaser hence they are well accepted than others.

This cuisine has a lot to offer and we all know the popular ones. It does not stop there, there are many other dishes that are less popular or heirloom recipes that needs to be shared so people get to know them and try them. During the past we had shared dishes like this, some examples are Gule Magalang, Pulutok, Guiso, Nasing Marangle and Kilayin. Today we are sharing another one, a soup dish so simple yet so delicious, the Sabo Kamatis.

Sabo Kamatis when translated literally means “Tomato Soup” but this Kapampangan household dish is nowhere near that Tomato Soup we all know, this one is the meaty version that is enjoyed with rice. A dish prepared with slowly boiled pork or beef bones with tomatoes, onions and garlic served with bok choy, cabbage and radish.

  5. I bet the fish sauce really gives this a nice kick of flavor. And using beef ribs is great, as they are easy to find here. Definite for the front burner once it cools down a bit!
