Baboy at Langka with Black Eyed Peas. This recipe is adopted from KBL - Baboy Langka at Kadyos a popular Iloilo. Kadyos is obviously not available down here so I used black eyed peas or beans instead. I have just recently cooked a similar black eyed beans dish using fork belly instead of pork hocks or pork pata, Black Eyed Pea with Pork Belly, that dish however was adopted from a similar dish called Pinablad a Pusi. There are also similar beans and pork dish in the archive just click the links below to check out recipes recipe.

Black Eyed Pea with Pork Belly, Pinablad a Pusi
As a substitute for batwan as a souring ingredient I just used sinigang mix. Obviously langka is also not available therefore I have to use the canned langka usually available in Asian stores I Here is the recipe of my Baboy at Langka with Black Eyed Peas.
1 small size pata ng baboy, pork leg
2 cups black eyed peas
1 big can canned unripe langka, drained, sliced thinly
1-2 tbsp. sampalok sinigang mix
1 medium size onion, quartered
2 medium size tomato, quartered
2 stalk tanglad, lemon grass
3-4 pcs. green long chili
Ask the butcher to saw cut the pork leg crosswise at 1 1/2” thick slices. Wash thoroughly and drain, in a charcoal grill quickly sear pork leg, in a large pot put seared pork leg and cover with enough water, bring to a boil for 3 to 5 minutes, Discard first boiled liquid and rinse boiled pork leg off scum. Now pour fresh water to cover pork leg add the lemon grass, bring to a boil and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes then add the black eyed peas. Continue to simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until the pork are tender and the black eyed peas start to disintegrate and the desired liquid consistency is achieved. Take out all scum that rises to the surface and add more water as necessary. Add in the sampalok sinigang mix, onion, tomato, green chili and canned jackfruit, simmer for another 10 to 15 minutes or until vegetables are cooked. Season with salt to taste. Serve hot with rice.
