It's still squash season and my relatives with squash plantation gave me quite a few. I save a few pesos and I was so eager to cook my favorite squash with string beans, bitter gourd and ground beef. My hubby has learned how to eat veggies cooked the Pinoy way. I'm so proud of him because he likes our foods and he has adapted himself to Filipino life. I am very fond of eating veggies and I love it more than meat. I love it more if the veggies are organic. I used to have a veggie garden at the back of our house in Texas. I wish we have one here but then again, our land here has a very limited space. Anyways, here's how I cook this recipe.
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 whole squash, peeled and cut into medium cubes
1 bundle of string beans, sliced into 1-2 inches
2 medium size bitter gourd, sliced
1 med. onion ( sliced)
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
3 tbsp. fish sauce
1/2 cup ground beef
1 cup water
1. In a pan put olive oil.
2. Saute garlic and onion.
3. Add ground beef and continue cooking until golden brown or fully cooked.
4. Add fish sauce, squash, string beans, bitter gourd and water.
5. Adjust the taste by adding some salt and water.
5. Simmer for a few minutes or until vegetables are tender.
6. Serve hot with rice.
