Chicken Giniling with Green Peas is a Filipino stew that makes use of ground chicken meat. This dish is usually made using ground pork (the dish using pork is called pork giniling), but it is a good idea to use other meat to see which is better. In this case, both chicken and pork ranked […]
Tortang Giniling is a type of Filipino omelet wherein ground meat (beef and pork being the most common) is sautéed with vegetables such as garlic, onions, and tomatoes then mixed directly with beaten eggs.
Unlike traditional omelets where eggs are folded around meats, cheeses, and vegetables; this recipe suggests cooked ground meat to be mixed in the beaten egg mixture before frying. A typical breakfast food, Tortang Giniling is best served with garlic fried rice and banana ketchup. Aside from being a breakfast food, this can also serve as your child’s packed lunch meal at school or your lunch at work – especially when you are always on the go.
I like this dish for three simple reasons: it is easy to prepare, economical (low cost), and delicious.
The only challenge that you might face is flipping the omelet. Since this covers the entire pan, it is quite challenging to flip everything and ensuring that the omelet lands in one piece. If you are having the same issue, try getting a similar sized pan or plate then transfer the omelet there (cooked part facing down). A spatula will be extra helpful to assist you in bringing the uncooked part of the egg back in the hot pan; you may also divide the ingredients into serving sizes and cook each one after the other; through this, flipping the omelet should come with ease.
I know that you have your own versions of this dish. Can you tell us how you do it? We love to learn new cooking styles and techniques. We hope to hear from you soon.
Pork Giniling is a pork dish that makes use of ground pork as the primary ingredient. Ground pork is stewed in tomato sauce and water to bring out the taste while vegetables such as carrots and potatoes (some also like this with raisins and green peas) are added for additional flavor and nutrition.
This can be considered as a staple dish in the Philippines when ground pork is concerned. I think that it is fair to say that Filipinos are into pork giniling as much as Americans are into chili. I have 2 ways of preparing this dish, this is the first while the other makes use of guisantes or green peas and raisins – boiled eggs are out of the picture.
I like this dish because of its simplicity. As a person, I tend to appreciate the simple things in life. I am not a minimalist; I just find serenity and lesser stress if I stick on to the basics. Don’t get me wrong; going the extra mile is a good thing but if I can accomplish what needs to be done with lesser effort and time then that’s the way that I’m going.

What we have is is our very first shared recipe made possible by Jannet Spengler of Heidelberg, Germany. Jannet does not like eating plain eggplant (tortang talong) ; this is the reason why she adds ground beef to the recipe. According to her, ground beef adds more flavor to the dish.
Do you have some recipes to share? Why don’t you send in your recipes with your personal photo and we’ll make sure to post them here. Pictures of the dish need not to be as complete as what Jannet has (don’t get intimidated :)). It’s time for you to get noticed.
