Giniling Guisado (Sauteed Ground Pork)

Giniling Guisado (Sauteed Ground Pork)

In the Philippines, this dish is fairly popular especially at street side eateries, called Turo-TurO, It came out with many names such as, afritadang giniling, tinadtad, and down to its most common name, "turo-turong giniling". I share my own simple version of Giniling Guisado using lean part of ground pork, fresh tomatoes and catsup for additional flavor and color. This dish is very flexible as you can come up with a myriad of dishes from this mix like,
pour this onto beaten whole eggs and it becomes torta (ground pork omelet). Add some raisins and green peas, wrap in dough bread,and it becomes the most loved empanada (filled bread buns). Mix it to a steamed or grilled eggplant and beaten eggs,it becomes tortang talong (eggplant omelet).Wrap the mix on fresh spring roll wrappers, and you'll come up with lumpiang shanghai. I credit the dish for its flexibility, starting with Giniling Guisado. Easy ,very tasty and affordable to make. ~HIR
