Cabbage and Cannellini Bean Stew is a dish I learned from my wife, its a dish made out of cabbage, cannellini beans and pork. I was asking her where did she got the recipe and from which province did it originated in the Philippines. She told me her father cooked it regularly during her childhood as it was believed to be a very nutritious dish, but like any bloke he was not an avid fan of vegetables and it was the wife who showed him how to eat them, so we guessed that it might be her mom who taught her dad this great recipe. As for the origin it might have an Ilocano origin (Ilocos, A Northern Province in the Philippines) evident with the use of bagoong, a common ingredient in Ilocano cusine. I guess this is one of the lesser known dishes in the said region or maybe a kept family recipe as I never had encountered this dish before.
