Recipe by littleturtle
Sinigang is a famous Filipino dish, typically sour, that can be made with chicken, beef, pork, shrimp or fish. Usually prepared with tamarind or less commonly with guava or mango. This one is a mix of beef & pork and gets it's sourness from lemon juice, making it quite different from most other sinigang recipes I've seen.

Sorry for no stars, I haven't actually tried this recipe. Just wanted to comment that this recipe looks like a good base, usually you can find "Sinigang" seasoning packets in Asian grocery stores to make it. But I try to avoid those for the MSG, so I've been adding Tamarand (it might be hard to find depending on where you live), and I use Calamasi juice (I've found frozen juice packets) instead of lemon. Calamansi is a native Filipino fruit, like a cross between lemon and orange.
