Ginisang Pechay (Sauteed Bok Choi with Ground Pork)

When I was a little kid, there’s this very simple Filipino dish that my mom used to cook often not only because it’s so easy to prepare but more because it is very economical. Though it’s not very appealing to my eyes, I learned to love it.  Do you know what it is? It’s pechay (a green leafy vegetable which is the Filipino Bok Choi) sauteed with ground pork. If you are from the Philippines, I’m sure you know that pechay is available in the market all year long. It is also one of the common vegetables that can be found in many backyard gardens, so you can buy it really cheap. But cheap as it is, it is packed with nutrients! It is rich in Vitamins A & C and in folate too. It also has small amount of calcium, iron, protein, niacin, thiamine, riboflavin, vitamin B-6 and Vitamin K. Pechay has that crisp and mild sweet taste that make it so good in soups and stir-fries. Ginisa is the simplest way of cooking pechay. Just like my mom, I enjoy cooking this nutritious and tasty dish! With just a bundle of pechay, a little ground pork and some spices, this will be ready in no time! You should try it!
