Ginisang Munggo with Pata

Ginisang Munggo with Pata

Level up natin ang #MonggoFridays with this Ginisang Munggo with Pata!

It’s my first time to try this. We usually have our Ginisang Monggo with another ulam. Usually something fried — like fried fish, fried liempo, or longganisa because our monggo doesn’t have any other sahog except shredded tinapa. I thought it would be nice to just have the monggo with a little something-something… LOL! So, I added Pata slices (pork hock slices).

Ginisang Munggo with Pata

What I did is to simmer the Pata slices separately in a pot with water for about 20 minutes or until it became tender. Then I added it to the ginisang monggo and simmer it for another 10 minutes. I still added shredded tinapa and I also added the water where the pata was boiled in to make it super flavorful.

I was right! It was a hit. This will be added in our regular menu rotation.

Hope you’re having a great week!
