Bicol Express Recipe

A lot of people I know are fond of spicy food and I’m one of them.  I remember when I was still a little girl, we had a house helper who cooked really good food.  She came from Bicol and one of her specialties is the Bicol Express.  Now, that I’m grown up already.  I have learned to cook my own version of Bicol Express.  Thanks to the internet for having the recipe available online.

Bicol Express is basically a stew made of pork, onions, garlic, coconut milk, shrimp paste and chili peppers.  I love this!
