Minced Pork & Potatoes Saute
This recipe is much love by Filipinos. It is easy to make and does not require much ingredients that are not already found in a working Filipino kitchen or except from the ground pork, the rest of the ingredients can be easily bought in a good sari-sari store (local corner shop)
1 tablespoon Olive oil or Vegetable oil
4-6 Garlic cloves, chopped finely
1 medium Onion, chopped finely
1 lb ground Pork
4 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes
3 tomatoes, chopped (optional)
3 tablespoons soy sauce
½ cup water
Fish sauce or salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Method of Preparation:
Using a wok or a deep pan, heat the oil.
Fry the garlic until golden, not burnt please, then add the onion and then the tomatoes. Cook until tomatoes are soft and mushy.
Add the minced pork. Use a wooden ladle to prod and separate the ground pork.
Saute the pork until brown, add the soy sauce and fry for a couple more minutes.
Stir in the potato cubes and cook for 1 minute just allowing them to be covered with the oil from the cooking minced pork.
Pour in the water and leave to simmer.
Adjust the seasoning by adding more salt or fish sauce according to your taste.
Add a little spice by blitzing it with a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper.
Stir until most of the liquid had evaporated.
Serve with freshly boiled rice.
PS: I remember having left overs as fillings to pandesal for a quick sandwich snack. Used to love it so very much.
