Ginisang Alukon with Ampalaya at Talong. For some reason I like this alukon, I just can resist buying some whenever it is available in my favorite supermarket the South Supermarket in Filinvest Alabang. I just buy it and decide later on how to cook it. Ginisang Alukon with Ampalaya at Talong came out as I was thinking on how to cook the alukon that was sitting in the ref for 2 days. It is simple, yes it is not a new dish, but it was the first time that I cooked ginisang gulay with alukon. It would have been best if I had some shrimp but I have to settle with pork to top my Ginisang Alukon with Ampalaya at Talong.
Here is the recipe of my Ginisang Alukon with Ampalaya at Talong.
100 grams pre-boiled pork, cut into thin strips
2 cups, alukon, trimmed
