If you don’t have a local Filipino market, I have provided suggestions for more readily available vegetables. But, if you can get to a market with Asian vegetables, go crazy and get creative! Also, I used bone-in pork chops because that’s what I had. You can easily use pork spare ribs or even cubes of pork for this recipe.
If you are substituting vegetables other than those listed in the recipe, you will want to add them to the stew in series based on how long they take to cook.
