Ground Pork in Tomato Sauce and a Bunch of Awards

My pollen allergy is acting up and I'm still not feeling well, but the bunch of awards I received today from Manu of Manu's Menu is enough reason to do a Monday post and share this recipe with you. :) It's called Ground Pork in Tomato Sauce or simply, Giniling na Baboy in the Philippines.

Giniling na Baboy which means Ground Pork is one of the traditional Filipino dishes that shows the richness of flavor and color of Philippine food heritage. The main ingredient of Giniling na Baboy is lean ground pork which is sauteed with striking colors of vegetables like potatoes, carrots, red bell peppers and green peas in rich tomato sauce. 

This is one pork dish that you should try! So simple yet so delicious!
