Asparagus Gising Gising

For today’s entry I used asparagus for my gising gising, I know it may be not appropriate because of the cost reason, at times asparagus are pricey especially at Metro Manila Supermarkets. Asparagus is one of the premium vegetable but there is no reason not to cook it Pinoy style, in fact I have another innovative adobong asparagus recipe in the archives.

Asparagus with Coconut Milk - Cooking Procedure

In a sauce pan sauté garlic, ginger and onion until fragrant. Add in the pork stir cook for 1 to 2 minutes, then add in the fish sauce and shrimp paste and continue to stir cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Add in 1/2 to 3/4 cup of water, 2/3 of the coconut cream, bring to a boil and simmer for 5 to 8 minutes or until the liquid has reduced to an oily sauce, stirring occasionally to prevent the coconut milk from curdling. Now add in the asparagus, chili and remaining coconut milk, correct saltiness if required and continue to cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Serve hot with a lot of rice.
