Monggo Guisado with Pork

Monggo Guisado with Pork |

#PHLockdown Day 18

Happy Friday mga inay! I’m sure marami ang magluluto ng munggo ngayon because it’s has become quite a tradition. But because we only have limited time to go the market (kagaya kami, once a week), if you weren’t able to stock up on the ingredients, you probably have a different ulam for today.

I rarely cook Monggo Guisado with Pork because I prefer to just pair this with another ulam, like fried fish or fried pork. I always cook it plain with just tinapa flakes to make it flavorful. This time with a little bit of pork so we can make do with just one viand. Syempre, konting tipid-tipid.

Hay, nauubusan na ako ng idea for tipid ulams. Any suggestions?
