Pork Ginagmay/Baboy Ginagmay

My mom and my grandmother has always been my greatest inspiration when it comes to cooking some delicious traditional food from the Philippines. I grew up watching them prepare food everyday in our kitchen as well as trying out new recipes for the entire family. So today, I decided to share with you guys this delicious recipe which can be prepared in various ways. Below, is my take on this recipe called Pork Ginagmay which are served pretty much in every little restaurants in the Philippines.


1 lb. pork (stew meat/slice into bite size)
2 large potatoes (slice into cubes)
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 cup water
1/2 cup of green peas
1 tbsp. asuete (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
4 cloves garlic (minced)
1 small onion
cooking oil
1 large bell pepper (green,red,orange)


1. Saute the garlic and onions. Add the meat, saute until the pinkish color is gone. Simmer the meat for a minute or two.

2. Add the asuete (food coloring) and stir, add soy sauce and simmer for another five minutes.

3. Add 1 cup of water and simmer until the meat becomes tender. When the meat is tender, you can finally add the carrots and potatoes and simmer for another 3 minutes or so.

4. Lastly, add the green peas and bell pepper. Simmer until it is done. Serve hot with steam rice. Enjoy folks!
