Ginisang Kalabasa


This recipe has almost the same directions as with my Ginisang Sayote recipe except that I used squash and shrimps instead.  I usually pair this with something fried like fish or lumpia, but it can also be eaten alone with a bowl of rice.

Ginisang Kalabasa


1/4 kilo of ground pork

1/4 kilo of shrimps, peeled and deveined

1/4 kilo of squash, cut into thick square strips

3 cloves of garlic, minced

1 small onion, minced

1 tsp of NamNam with Tomato

1 tbsp Kikkoman soy sauce

Cook ground pork in 2 cups of water until it turns into a light brown color.  Set aside.  Heat oil in a pan then saute garlic and onions for about 2mins. Add shrimps and cook until it turns into a light orange color. Then, add cooked ground pork and stir for about 5mins.  Next, add the squash, 1 cup of water, soy sauce and season with NamNam, sugar and pepper.  Adjust seasoning according to taste.  Cover the pan and let it simmer until the squash is softened enough.  Do not overcook.

Serve while hot.
