I cooked this for lunch on August 26,2011. Just craving for some chili hot flavor that time, and I've decided Bicol Express since it's been a long time that I have not eaten it. I missed the taste of it from my brother's cooking.
Bicol express is one of the popular dishes in the Philippines. It was named after one region in the Philippines which this dish originated (Bicol).
They called it Bicol Express because they said when you eat it you will look for
a drinking water as quick as you can because it is so hot!!!:D Have a chili hot experience in your kitchen by cooking Bicol Express for one of your meals. Here is the recipe for it.
1 kilo pork or beef
1 tablespoon shrimp paste ( bagoong)
5 cloves of garlic
1 1/2 cup coconut milk
