SUKANG ILOCO WITH RED ONION & GARLIC DIPPING SAUCE

SUKANG ILOCO WITH RED ONION AND GARLIC DIPPING SAUCE© BUSOG! SARAP! 2012

I’ve used Mr. H stash of Sukang Iloko for this dipping sauce, it went well with the Sumpia version I’ve made with the addition of pork belly slices.  I love the balance of the sweetness, saltiness and that slight punch of the vinegar (Sukang Iloco) of this dipping sauce, very addictive!

SUKANG ILOKO ~ produce in the northern Ilocos region of the Philippines, this naturally fermented vinegar is light brown in appearance and made from sugar cane wine called “basi” that has turned sour.


INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup Sukang Iloko

2 tspn sugar

1/2 tspn salt

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1/4 large red onion, finely diced

pinch of coarse ground pepper

*used U.S Measuring Cups & Spoons

ASSEMBLING:

~ Please crush the clove of garlic with the flat side of your knife, don’t use a garlic crusher tool. Combine all the ingredients, and stir with a spoon until salt and sugar granules has dissolved. Serve freshly made or can be stored in the fridge for 1-2 days.

  1. Let's see. . . this is a good dipping sauce for anything fried. Fried fish, pork chops, and of course Crispy Pata! Thanks for sharing, Thea!
