Kadyos, Baboy, Langka (KBL) Recipe
KBL (Kadyos, Baboy, Langka) Recipe - This popular and well-loved Ilonggo dish is easy to make, with only a handful of ingredients and cooked in one pot. The KBL's sour broth is reminiscent of Sinigang, with the Batwan fruit serving as a souring ingredient.
Hey guys. Today, I will share with you a truly authentic Ilonggo dish, the always delicious Kadyos, Baboy, Langka; lovingly referred to as KBL by the Ilonggos. The main ingredient for the KBL are just that: Kadyos (pigeon peas), Baboy (preferably pork hock/pata) and unripe Langka (jackfruit).

Most recipes I find online instructs that you first boil the pork to get rid of the "malansang" (bad, stinky) smell. I don't think that's an Ilonggo way of cooking. The one I learned from my nanay (mother) and lola (grandma) requires that you first marinate and grill the pork. This gives the soup a richer flavor and wonderful aroma - definitely no more stinky smelling pork.

Delicious: Kadyos, Baboy, Langka (KBL)
This KBL recipe is good for up to 6 people. You can adjust the liquid depending on whether you want more broth or not. I personally prefer adding a small amount of liquid - just enough to cover the meat and vegetables. To add a little bite to the dish, some people like to add a few pieces of red pepper. You can also opt to add a few stalks of sweet potato (kamote) leaves to add color to the dish. Hope I have explained this recipe in detail and clearly. Enjoy your Kadyos, Baboy, Langka!
