Submitted by: Ginar Asombrado
It has been raining all month and I’m starting to feel the cold weather – lonely, rainy days again. So, I started to think of a way to shake the boredom off. And one solution I see is to cook! Yes! Cooking hot and spicy foods would definitely help shake off these rainy feeling we all have during the rainy season. But, thinking of a recipe that’s hot and spicy, I soon discovered that I just have a small array of recipes from that genre. I now called my mother and asked her what to cook. She told me that what if I cook Gising gising, a good Pork recipe that’s both hot and spicy, and at the same time yummy!
I then went to look for this recipe in our old cooking books. Here are the ingredients I found:
o 2 tbsp (28 g) minced garlic
o 1 pc (75 g) large onion, chopped
o 3 tbsp (63 g) bagoong alamang
o 200 g (200 g) ground pork
o 1/2 pc (.5 g) siling labuyo, chopped (optional)
o 1/2 kg (500 g) Baguio Beans, thinly sliced
o 1 pouch (115 g) Pineapple Tidbits
o 1 pack (40 g) instant gata mix powder, dissolved in 1/4 cup wate
Now that you have your ingredients, let’s start cooking!
First, sauté the garlic, in 1 tsp. oil, wait until golden brown, and then add the onions, sauté well. Now, add the bagoong alamang and cook it for a few minutes. Add the pork, sauté it until lightly browned. Next, add the Baguio beans, sili and pineapple tidbits with syrup. Cover and simmer until the beans are almost cooked. Afterwards, add the gata mixture and simmer for another two (2) minutes. And there you have your very own gising gising!
