Giniling na may pechay at sabaw (Ground meat with Chinese cabbage and soup) is one of my favorite comfort foods. It’s easy to make and always hits the spot.
Simply saute one chopped onion in hot oil till transparent. Saute garlic till softened. Add chopped tomato. Add your choice of ground meat (beef, pork or chicken) and saute till brown. Stir in 2 tablespoons of fish sauce. Pour in one cup of hot water (or broth, if you prefer). Simmer till the meat is cooked. Skim off the scum as you go along. Stir in the pechay’s chopped white stalks. Then mix in the chopped leaves. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
I don’t really measure much when cooking, but appromixately I used 1/4 kilo of ground meat, one small white onion, two cloves of garlic, one small tomato, and two bundles of petchay (about 15-16 stalks). It serves 2-3 people with a hearty appetite.
This is best eaten in a deep bowl with cooked rice mixed into the broth. I love it that way. It always comforts me. And it’s perfect for this rainy Thursday!

Ayus yan ah! Lalo na at umuulan. I requested my MIL to cook tahong in 7-Up (or Sprite) and some crispy fried galunggong! Can’t wait for dinner.

Yum! I actually like my ginisang petchay with fried tofu then seasoned with soy sauce instead of fish sauce.

Even without the meat, its still yummy. I cooked it from time to time plain pechay with garlic and water plus a little ginisa mix

Hello Toni! 8 years later, you’ve taught a another newly married woman how to cook this yummy comfort food. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Tweaked it to my taste but this is my ultimate guide! God bless you.

I often visit your site and have noticed that you
don’t update it often. More frequent updates will give your page higher authority & rank in google.
I know that writing content takes a lot of time, but you can always help yourself with miftolo’s
