2 teaspoon fish sauce

1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

4. On the other pan, boil a water. Then blanch the pork for 5 mins only in order to retain its flavour. Remove impurities as necessary.

5. Once the pork is cleaned, add it to the kadyos. Season with salt, fish sauce and black ground pepper. Simmer for atleast 1 hour or till the pork become soft. Replenish fluids if needed. Stir occasionally. 

6. Once the pork meat is soft, you can add the langka. Tip: ensure that the chewy center of the langka is removed. Simmer for atleast 10 mins or till the langka is cook.
