Cooking Filipino food means having a good knowledge of various seasonings and toppings to make a dish more vibrant and distinctive. But while applauding the unique path, we can’t help but lean towards the familiar ones that have proven to work very well with a variety of recipes. In this case, I am talking about this comforting and delicious combination of Pork Giniling with Oyster Sauce.
The Giniling Pork itself is rich, savory and soothing with its mix of vegetables and thick stew. Such a dish uses potatoes and carrots to add texture. We also have tomato sauce for flavor. But adding the perfect little touch of oyster sauce also makes a big difference in flavor. There is a sense of sweetness that can accompany delicious tomato sauce as well as meat.
How about you try it and cook a delicious pork giniling with oyster sauce at home?
How to make Pork Giniling with Oyster Sauce:
First, you need to take ¼ cup of cooking oil and put it in the pan. Apply some heat. Now, when it’s hot, you can add 2 chopped potatoes and sauté them. You’ll know it’s okay when the outside turns light brown. This would be your cue to remove the potatoes from the pan and set them aside, as we will be using them later.
We will now be using the pan and its leftover oil again, so don’t throw it away yet. Place 1 minced onion, 3 minced garlic cloves, and 2 minced tomatoes in the pan. Then brown them all together until the onion has softened. So you can put 1 pound of ground pork inside. This will cook for 2 minutes without stopping stirring.
Adding some of our liquid toppings:
So go ahead and add 2 1/2 tablespoons of soy sauce to the pan and 1 cup of water. Lower the heat and cook everything without a lid. Continue like this until the liquid has been reduced by half. And then we’ll add 3 tablespoons of oyster sauce and cook it for 5 minutes.
And do you remember the potato cubes we ate earlier? It’s time to add them to the plate, so put it back in the pan. Cook for about 2-3 minutes, then you can go ahead and add some cracked black pepper to your liking. Now you have: a savory, semi-sweet, savory pork giniling with oyster sauce! Serve it however you like, perhaps in a bowl to share with friends, or just scoop some up for yourself and let the rest cool before storing.
