Sautéed Ilocano Vegetables with Ground Pork

Sautéed Ilocano Vegetables with Ground Pork
Sautéed Ilocano Vegetables with Ground Pork, or ginisang sitaw, sigarilyas, saluyot, bunga ng malungay at labong with giniling na baboy. Most of the Ilocanos are vegetable loving people, these is clearly demonstrated on the Ilocano cuisine. Several of the popular Ilocano vegetables are the pinakbet, dinengdeng, inabraw. These vegetables dishes are usually cooked simple, most of the time the vegetables are just boiled with bagoong then topped with fish or meat either grilled or fried. Of course there are other Ilocano vegetables that are sautéed with meat and aromatics but most likely it is made up of a medley of Ilocano vegetables.

Ginisang sitaw, sigarilyas, saluyot, bunga ng malungay at labong with giniling na baboy.

Today I would like to share one using a medley of vegetables that were available at the time of cooking. Of course do not limit the vegetable combination as mentioned on the recipe. used any vegetables that are available just remember the leafy vegetables will coo faster. For this recipe I used ground pork for the meat ingredient, again you may use beef or chicken instead or should you are not into ground meat just dice or slice the meat. Here is the recipe of my Sautéed Ilocano Vegetables with Ground Pork.

Ginisang Gulay


1/4 kilo shredded and parboiled labong, bamboo shoots
1 small bundle sitaw, string beans, trimmed, cut into 2” lengths
1 small bundle sigarilyas, winged beans, trimmed, cut diagonally
