Ginisang Sigarilyas is a classic dish with onion, garlic, and of course, the refreshing taste of crunchy sigarilyas or winged bean, this is a recipe that satisfies everything you’d want in your delicious Filipino ulam. It is sure to get you full, and won’t be a strain on your health even if you eat more than your usual serving of it.
This is because winged beans contain a good amount of protein, iron, and vitamins A and C. And another advantage we can’t forget about? They are absolutely delicious! For this dish, it is sat with ingredients of varying textures for that complementary taste, such as pork and cubed tomatoes.
Starting to wonder about how to make this perfectly savory dish? Let’s cook some Ginisang Sigarilyas!
As with most savory dishes, we will begin by heating up our oil. Pour 3 tablespoons of cooking oil into your pan, then add 3 cloves of chopped garlic, 1 onion that’s been chopped, and 1 tomato that’s been cubed. Sauté all of these together, and wait for the onion and tomato bits to soften.
Once these ingredients are nice and tender, you can proceed to place 2 ounces of pork inside. Make sure that you’ve sliced them into thin pieces for this. Keep these ingredients cooking, and wait for your pork to become light brown in color. This should be your sign to put ½ cup of water in your pan.
Place a cover on top of the pan, and let this cook until your water evaporates fully. Here comes the exciting part of adding our hero ingredient. Place 8 ounces of sliced winged bean inside, and then sauté all of your ingredients for 3 minutes.
Once you’re done with this, we’ll incorporate a few more ingredients for that lovely piquant taste. Add your preferred amount of fish sauce, as well as ¼ teaspoon of ground black pepper. Then you’re done! All you’ll need to complete this delicious dish is some freshly cooked, compact rice.
If this recipe’s tempted you to find some more simple, but invitingly tasty viands for cooking, look no further!
Here are a couple of recipes like Ginisang Sigarilyas I can recommend!
Looking to have your deliciously crisp sigarilyas another way? Perhaps with the soothing, creamy taste of coconut milk? Sigarilyas Gising Gising is a recipe you surely must try!

When it comes to picking Filipino food to serve your guests, it’s quite hard to go wrong with Pork Adobo. This beloved, famous dish is rich, tantalizingly sour, and a revered classic. But don’t be intimidated, as I’ve got the recipe all laid out for you here with clear instructions. By the end of it, you’ll have the most flavorful stew infused with dry sherry, white vinegar, soy sauce, dried bay leaves, and of course, pork.
You also can’t forget about an essential ingredient that goes exceptionally well with our adobo. This recipe incorporates boiled egg as well to go with the powerful taste of our stew brimming with delicious seasonings. Serve this for your next get together, and impress your guests with this delectable example of local cuisine!
Unlike our previous recipes, Marinated Grilled Pork Chop does not have a stew. Instead, it relies on a gorgeous marinate of lime, garlic and liquid seasoning for that juicy interior. And paired with our grilled, subtly crunchy exterior, the pork chops taste heavenly in its tangy and savory notes.
This may take a bit longer to make compared to other viands. But the wait will surely be worth it because every aspect of this recipe is met with ingredients tailored to best enhance the pork’s flavor. An important step is basting the pork chop as we grill it, and this involves the same delicious liquid seasoning, as well as some tasty banana ketchup.
Try another impressively sautéed dish with a yummy vegetable ingredient right at its center. We use sayote for this recipe to give the dish a uniquely refreshing flavor and texture. This also has a wealthy deal of carrots and pork belly to make it a delightfully filling dish.
