Pork Ham Recipe - Pork Estofado Style

I was craving for pork estofado but I don’t have the main ingredients available in our fridge.  Estofado is made from pork leg (my moms recipe) with banana plantain in it. These main ingredients are not available from local stores near our home so I went to Asian Store to buy pata (pork leg). Unfortunately pork leg was not available either so I grabbed the pork ham instead since I was informed that pork ham and pork leg are from the same part of the animal. My experimental recipe turned out good... umm yummy as what my daughter said.
