Kitchen Adventures: Confused - Gising-gising or Bicol Express


With the cold weather, it is nice to have spicy and hot foods to keep the heat up. Here's a suggestion. I really don't know the name of this dish since mommy saw this at the net as "Gising-gising" while carinderia near our office referred to this as "Bicol Express". What ever you call this one, it is good for this kind of weather. I cooked this last saturday night.

Ingredients:
1/4 kilo Bagiuo beans, sliced to about 2cm thick
1/4 kilo pork, sliced into bite-size
10 pcs. Siling pangsigang, sliced like the beans
1 1/2 cup coconut milk
1 pc onion, chopped
1 tbsp. garlic, minced
2 tbsp. shrimp paste (bagoong alamang)

How to cook:
Saute garlic, onion. Add pork and continue sauteing until the pork turn golden brown. Add shrimp paste until it was already cooked. Add the beans and sili. When the veggies are about half-cooked, add coconut milk and simmer for about 5 minutes.

Is that easy?
