Giniling na Baboy is both a dish and is actually the literal translation of ground pork. It's among the easiest recipes and one that can be tweaked to suit you own taste at the same time cooked with whatever ingredients are available. While most often it is cooked with tomato sauce, it can be one with out it. Too add more kick to it, I often smother it bottled hot sauce. Namit gid!
