Pinakbet Ilocano

I'm re-posting here one of my favorite Filipino recipes which is Pinakbet. We always have this recipe in our house and my hubby love it too. There are many variations of cooking Pinakbet but I like the Ilocano style with ampalaya. I think pinakbet is not complete without it. I won't get tired eating pinakbet even everyday. Hmmm... yummy.
