Ground beef with upo and malunggay


This is my favorite because while I get the full beef flavor just like bulalo without too much animal grease, I also get the vegetable serving of the day.

1 tablespoon canola oil
4 cloves of garlic
1 pc onion, cubed
2 ripe tomatoes, sliced
1/4 ground beef
Soy sauce
Salt and black pepper
1 pc upo or bottle gourd, sliced
12 stalks of malunggay, leaves separated from stalks

Saute garlic in oil until it turns golden brown and add onion. Add sliced tomatoes until cooked and add then ground beef. Let cook until tender and add soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste. Let meat cook through. Add 4 cups of water and bring to boil. Add about 3 cups of upo and bring to boil until upo is cooked. Add malunggay and close lid. Remove from fire and serve hot over rice or as soup.
