Pork Guisantes (Filipino Pork and Peas)

From www.foodnetwork.com, the best that I've ever made. I love the flavor from the patis (fish sauce). I also add red and or green bell pepper for the color and taste. Pretty Christmas color dish!

Super easy and tasty weeknight meal. I added zucchini to the mix (plus extra water and extra simmer time). You can skip the tomato paste for an even simpler version.
