"Pork Giniling is a Filipino delicacy for all seasons. It is a very good balance of meat and veggies, plus the ripe tomatoes which is good for the heart! Pork giniling is actually a very versatile dish. Leftover pork giniling are always in for another ride. You may turn them into lumpiang shanghai, be filled into empanada, or simply turn it into an omelette. If you have kids in the house, you may cook pork giniling to help them love and eat healthy veggies.A breakdown of nutrients from carrots, potatoes, and green peas are also great!"

Cooking MethodSkillet


  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 pc onion, medium size
  • 2 pcs tomatoes, chopped
  • 125 grams ground pork
  • 1 pc carrot, medium size, cut into small cubes
  • 1 pc potato, medium size, cut into small cubes
  • 1 can green peas, drained
  • 1 pc bell pepper, chopped into small cubes
  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste (optional)
  • 1 pc pork cubes
  • salt
  • pepper
  • water (for a bit of sauce)


  1. Heat a pan and put in cooking oil. Saute onion and garlic. Add in tomatoes. Cover for about one minute to let the natural flavors come out.

  2. Add ground pork. Occasionally stir to avoid the meat from burning and sticking to the pan. Season some salt and pork cubes, mix and cover. Let the natural juice of the pork come out. Let it simmer until the meat is tender and cooked.

  3. Put in carrots, potatoes, and green peas. Mix together by stirring occasionally. Cover and let it simmer again for about 5 minutes.

  4. Add tomato paste (if preferred) and stir until the paste is fully incorporated. Put in bell pepper. You might want to add a little water at this point.

  5. Season with a bit more salt and pepper. Let it simmer for 3 more minutes.

  6. Turn off the heat, transfer to a big bowl and serve with hot rice!
