You can use ground pork/beef or pork strips. Put a little water, about 1/4 - 1/2 tsp iodized salt and finely milled peppercorn and 1-2 tbsp oil. Put to boil until water dried and oil comes out. Cook in its oil until a little brown then set on the other side of the pan, tilting it so that you can saute on the lower part.
Saute garlic, onions, and tomatoes. Add salt to hasten the wilting of tomatoes. Stir. Put your preferred seasoning (bouillon cube or msg? Me, I prefer beef bouillon)on top. Add ampalaya to the saute. Set fire on medium to avoid scorching the saute. Cover and stir after about 3-5 mins. Add scrambled eggs and stir. Put off fire once the eggs are cooked.
what was on my mind is that it takes also a person knowledgeable in cooking to cook a great ampalaya.
let me share a TIP: 1. if you master your sauteing technique skill your chance in cooking a great ampalaya is 80%.
2. don't let the oil burn the ampalaya, when sauteing 'cause that is what makes it bitter
Anyway i want to try your cooking recipe cause it uses a tomato and egg. Good Job to other recipes !! yahhhaaa Merry Christmass in Advance
I miss eating ampalaya!
