ONE POT Pork Giniling (Filipino Pork & Vegetable Stew)

Being a 1st-gen Filipino-American immigrant is not easy. Ever since my family and I moved to the US, we were often exhausted at the end of the long work day. Pork giniling was perfect at times like these, as one of the fastest main courses to cook in Filipino cuisine. 

The economical pork giniling takes under 30 minutes to cook all in one pan and uses ingredients or leftovers that you probably already have. Just toss in diced potatoes, carrots, bell peppers, ground pork, and some of our Fila Manila Banana Ketchup and your lunch shall be ready in a jiffy!

There are a variety of ways to eat pork giniling: with rice, pandesal, or as sandwich filling. You can even turn leftovers into an egg omelette for breakfast the next day, after up to 3 days in an airtight container in the fridge or 2 months in the freezer.
