    cali_love's Note:

    A popular Ilocano dish from the Northern regions of the Philippines. You can omit the bittermelon if you're not a fan, as it is an acquired taste. Authentic pinakbet includes bittermelon in the recipe. If you can't find the salted shrimp paste at your local Safeway, try your friendly local Asian supermarkets. You can also make this a vegetarian dish by omitting the pork.

      thanks for posting. i don't cook with pork anymore, & i didn't have okra or calabaza on hand (tsk, tsk, tsk) so i just halved the recipe. i was the only one eating anyway. lol. anyhow, i would cook the long beans ahead of the eggplant & the bittermelon coz they seemed to take forever to cook. i added more or less 2 tbsp. of bagoong all in all so i had to drink lots & lots of water afterwards. yikes! it tasted great! it's actually nice when you cook it a little bit more so the sauce turns into flakes somewhat. loved it with steamed rice.
