Simmered Vegetables with Shrimp (Guisadong Gulay) Recipe

A simple but delicious way to cook a selection of fresh vegetables with shrimp and other meats.

Ingredients :

    • 8 oz (250 g) boneless pork loin
    • 3 cups (750 ml) water
    • 3 tablespoons oil
    • 6 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/2 medium onion, diced
    • 2 small tomatoes, diced
    • 1 tablespoon fish sauce (patis) or 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 cup (100 g) cauliflower florets
    • 1 small carrot, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
    • 8 oz (250 g) fresh medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
    • 1 cup (90 g) broccoli florets
    • 1/4 small green cabbage, cut into bite-sized pieces
    • 1 cup (5 oz/100 g) cooked fava beans or broad beans (optional)
    • 1 cup (31/2 oz/100 g) snow peas, cut into sections

Method :

    1. In a deep saucepan, boil the pork in the water, uncovered, until the meat is cooked, about 10 minutes. Remove the meat, drain and set aside to cool. Strain and reserve 11/2 cups (375 ml) of the stock. When the pork meat has cooled, cut it into 1-in (21/2 cm) cubes and set aside.
    2. Heat the oil in a wok and stir-fry the garlic until golden brown, then add the onion and stir-fry until translucent. Add the tomatoes and cook until soft.
    3. Add the pork cubes, reserved pork stock, fish sauce and pepper, and bring to a boil. Add the cauliflower and carrot, and cook for 3 minutes. Then add the shrimp and the rest of the vegetables, and cook for another 3 minutes, until the shrimp turn pink and the vegetables are cooked. Serve hot.
