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.
