Pork Giniling Recipe

Do you always have ground pork or beef in the fridge? I always have ground pork sitting in the fridge as I buy whenever there is a huge sale. Plus! I can always whip up an easy meal for my family with ground pork, chicken or beef like pork giniling, so I regularly buy ground meat.

Pork giniling is an easy to cook pork dish that uses ground pork as main ingredient. This dish is nutritious and delicious. It is a popular dish that almost all carinderia (small food stall) that I know serves it. Pork giniling is a dish that stewed pork meat in tomato sauce and water. Vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and green peas are added to make the dish flavorful.

My pork giniling recipe is a simple version of this dish. You see! Other pork giniling recipes make use of guisantes, raisins and boiled eggs but I don’t. But if I want to splurge a bit, I sometimes add quail eggs to my ingredients. So, if you want, you can also add quail or regular eggs and raisins to your pork giniling.
