Ginisang Monggo

I don't know why Filipinos commonly serve this on a Friday. Can anyone please let me know? Anyhow, here's how I cook ours.


3 cloves garlic, minced
1 whole onion cut into strips
1 tomato cut into strips
1/4 pork cut into small bits
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp iodized salt
a dash of sugar
2 cups water
2 cups monggo beans
2 bundles of chili leaves

1. Wash monggo beans and soak in water overnight.
2. Saute pork in onion, garlic and tomato.
3. Add soy sauce, salt and sugar.
4. Cook until meat is tender and ready to eat.
5. Add monggo beans, chili leaves and water. Cook for another 15 minutes.
