Here is another popular vegetable dish, who would not know the Pinakbet. I have mentioned on my previous post that Pinakbet is original of Northern Luzon the Ilocanos.

Pinakbet have become the national favorite vegetable dish of the Filipinos. There are hundreds of variations depending on the available ingredients, how ever it has to have the bagoong.

On this post recipe is the Tagalog version of pinakbet, It is guinisa with bagoong alamang. I used also ground beef instead of the usual pork.


100 g. ground beef
1/3 cup bagoong alamang
1 big size tomato, chopped
1 medium size onion, chopped
1 thumb size ginger, sliced
1 bundle sitaw, cut in 2” lengths
1/8 of a whole squash, seeded, cut into wedges
1 bundle okra, tips and stem remove, sliced diagonally
2 medium size eggplant, slit half, cut into wedges
2 medium size ampalaya, seeded, slit half, cut into wedges
cooking oil

Cooking procedure:

In a sauce pan, sauté garlic, ginger, onion and tomato. Add beef and stir cook for 2-3 minutes or until meat turns to golden brown. Add 1-2 cups of water let boil and simmer for another 3-5 minutes. Add in vegetables and bagoong alamang. Simmer for another 5-10 minutes or until vegetables are half cooked. Season with patis if necessary cook for another minute. Serve immediately.
