How To Cook Pork Picadillo | Pork Picadillo Recipe

Pork giniling is the Filipino version of the picadillo recipe. 

Pork Picadillo Recipe

This is a simple pork dish fried with saute’d garlic, onions and tomatoes. Some put tomato sauce in their picadillo to make it richer. As for me, I’m sticking with the basic. I don’t want to overpower the natural sweetness of the tomatoes with the flavors of the tomato sauce. Also, I have raisins to do that job for me.

Here’s how I make my simple pork picadillo recipe.


Pork Picadillo Recipe

-Minced pork, 400g
-Garlic, 5-7 cloves, crushed and chopped
-Onions, 1 whole, chopped
-Tomatoes, 2 whole, chopped
-Potatoes, 1 whole, cubed
-Carrots, 1 whole, cubed (optional)
-Raisings, 40g
-Water, 1 cup
-Fish sauce, 1 tbsp
-Salt and pepper, to taste
-Cooking oil, 2-3 tbsp
-Hard-boiled eggs

1. Pour cooking oil in a heated pan.
2. Saute the garlic under medium heat.
3. When the garlic turns golden, put in the pork.
4. Season the pork with fish sauce.
5. Let it cook for 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally.
6. When the pork had released its juices and shows off its oils, add in the onions and tomatoes.
7. Stir well until the tomatoes have wilted.
8. Add in the water.
9. Put in the potatoes and raisins.
10. Let the dish boil under low heat for 10-15 minutes.
11. Season with salt and pepper according to your liking.
12. Serve on a dish with boiled eggs.

Here's how I cook my hard boiled eggs:

Put the eggs together with the water instead of waiting for the water to boil first before adding in the eggs. Since I’m going for hard boiled ones, anyway; there is no need for me to be cautious. When the water boils, wait for 3-5 minutes before turning the heat off. Done.

This pork giniling recipe is very easy to do. It’s one of my go-to dishes when I’m in a rush or simply have nothing in mind to cook.
