    i do this same recipe for my daughter’s baon but using the cheaper bangus back fillet as she doesn’t like the taba… :D

  2. Connie says:

    I used to buy the back fillets too but I can’t find them anymore at Shopwise Antipolo.

    This is one of my favourite dishes. Simpleng gawin pero masarap =) I love bangus belly!!

  4. missy says:

    bakit po tinawag na “a la pobre”?

  5. Connie says:

    So do I, Ellen. Bangus is nothing without the belly hehehehe

    missy, it’s a carry over from “steak a la pobre” which uses cheaper cuts of beef in lieu of real steaks.

    Boneless bangus here in Dagupan are seasoned with vinegar. Is that ok for this recipe?

  7. Connie says:

    Ah seasoned for pang-daing? You’ll have to omit the kalamansi juice but the cooked dish will taste more like adobo than bistek.

    i love bangus anyway it’s cook…
    this one is making me hungry…
    bangus belly is expensive though and i’m a frugal cook.
    imagine me buying a whole salmon and cutting it all up and then divide it serving portions then in the freezer.i must be out of my mind.

    My husband (who does the market rounds hehe) buys boneless bangus. Actually, he buys them fresh and whole and for an additional 5pesos fee per piece, the vendor debones them. Ang galing at bibilis nila ha!

    mareza, i call that organized. i can only wish i was more organized hehehe

    chats, i’ve seen that done at the taytay public market. ok lang manood dun kasi di mabantot. dito sa antipolo, ang palengke, hay naku… sa supermarket na lang nga!

  14. elles says:

  15. Alunsina Nunez says:

    tried this today and it rocked the house! my husband who doesnt eat bangus that is not fried tried it and he liked it.

    the search function really brings out surprising results. thanks!

      The daing formula can get boring after a while. A break from it can make it exciting again after a while. :)
