Pampabata is a word used to describe a food that is not really good for health, they jokingly tell you " you will be forever young" because you will not grow old if you are always eating pampabata, it means you will die young, but some people can not resist because it is tempting and delicious! This dish is the official "pampabata" recipe from my kitchen. EAT AT YOUR OWN RISK!
1/4 kilo pork's fat
1 onion ( cut thinly into rings)
1/2 piece bell pepper ( cut into strips)
3 cloves garlic
2 pieces calamansi
1 tablespoon patis or soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1.Put the fat in the pan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the oil comes out, then continue cooking it with its own oil until brownish and crispy, then remove and set aside.

3. Add the toasted fats, then stir, add the soy sauce or patis, squeeze the calamansi and mix well, add salt and pepper to taste then turn off the heat.
