About the Dish:
Sinigang is a traditional Filipino soup characterized by its sour taste. It is made by simmering meat (usually pork, beef, or shrimp) in a tamarind-based broth along with vegetables such as tomatoes, onions, and leafy greens. This dish is loved for its tangy and savory flavor, and it is often enjoyed with steamed rice.
