Gising Gising ala Nicely

Here is what I promised to you the last time I talked about Gising Gising. That "last time" is only an hour ago. Lol.

Folks, I am so proud to share with you my own version of Gising Gising, inspired by the Recipes.
Category: Main dish
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 3-5

1 tbsp cooking oil (for sautéing)
1 tbsp minced garlic
2 medium size onions, chopped
1 piece chili (siling haba, green)
1/4 Baguio beans, chopped diagonally
1/2 kilo ground pork
1 pack of Knorr's Cream of Mushroom, dissolve in 1 cup of water
salt and pepper to taste

1. In a frying pan, heat cooking oil. Saute garlic and onion until they turn transparent.
2. Add in chili and ground pork. Mix until golden brown.
3. Pour in the Cream of Mushroom-and-water solution and simmer for 20 minutes or more.
4. If the pork is already cooked and the soup already creamy, mix in the chopped Baguio beans.
5. Simmer for another 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.

Note: 1) There are some versions of Gising Gising, which uses coconut milk or plain evaporated milk. I prefer using Cream of Mushroom simply because I love the flavor of mushroom. 2) Some like Gising Gising spicy, some like it spicier. So, it depends upon you - the cook - and the diners' preference if you are to add more chili on it. 3) Good source of vitamins and minerals, protein, calcium and a lot more. 4) Having an abundant supply of iced red tea and fresh oranges on the table will make it a healthier meal.
