Pork Giniling

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by caromello

This is my mom's basic pork giniling (also a variation to her Corn Giniling). The annato powder (or achuete/achiote) can be found in ethnic supermarkets. It adds a mild flavor and a rich color to the dish. Leftover giniling can be used to combine with scrambled eggs to pan-fry and make torta.

this tastes very good! i just added & sauteed some chopped tomatoes together with the sauteed garlic & onions & also added frozen peas towards the end. the amount of fish sauce recommended is perfect. later, made wonderful torta (omelette) with fish sauce & lemon juice dip.
