Giniling, in english, is ground meat, be it pork, chicken or beef. In Filipino cuisine, it's a viand. It’s like "Menudo" but with finely chopped ingredients.
- 300 grams lean ground pork.
- ¼ tsp ground black pepper
- 1 tbsp + ½ tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsps cooking oil
- 3 cloves garlic, finely crushed
- 1 medium (35 g) red onion, minced
- A few drops of orange food color
- 1-1/3 cup water or rice wash
- 1 chicken cube
- ¼ kg potato, cut into thin short strips
- In a bowl, put ground pork, pepper and a tablespoon of soy sauce. Mix thoroughly. Set aside.
- In a wok, saute garlic in cooking oil until golden brown. Add onions. Cook until soft. Place marinated ground pork. Add some drops of orange food color. Sauté for 5-7 minutes or until liquid evaporates.
- Add water, chicken cube and half tablespoon of soy sauce. Mix. Cook for another 5 minutes with cover. Put potato. Cover again. Bring to boil. Turn off heat. Let it stand for a few minutes.
- To serve: in a plate, put hot cooked rice and "Giniling". Mix thoroughly. Drizzle lightly with fish sauce all over.
If you don't have orange food color, substitute a tsp of atsuete with lihia soaked in 1-½ tbsp of warm water. Mash, to extract color. Strain seeds.
