AMW Cooks: Cantonese Style Ground Pork with Egg

Before I share my recipe on the ultimate comfort food (for me), I want to share how much fun I had at my first 2-hour intensive makeup workshop at Benefit SM Mall of Asia.  This targets Benebabes who want to learn makeup hands-on and it was meant to be very intimate for me to be able to really focus on each girls' faces!  

Again, thank to the gorgeous Benebabes and Benefit Cosmetics Philippines for making my weekend super fun! 

Now on to the recipe, don't judge me on putting "Cantonese Style" on this regular Pork Giniling recipe, because we are Cantonese and I haven't seen other household cook the exact same dish as my mom, I'm claiming this to be my mom's dish because I love her and I'm proud of her :)  Back when I was really young (really young because young lang ako now lol)  "meat" dishes aren't usual in the AMW household, because my mom is very strict when it comes to our meal, we had to have a balance of meat and vegetables and back when we are young, don't we just dislike vegetables?  

So whenever my mom cook her version of Ground Pork with Egg, I have this warm, fuzzy feeling not only in my tummy but also in my heart!  Whenever I have bad grades in school, or I feel really tired from all the studying, taking a bite on this dish can energize me!  Up until this very moment, I always think about my mom and the way she took care of us whenever I cook this dish! 

For a super simple and short recipe, my introduction is super long!  *laughs* 

What you need ---
  • Ground pork
  • Eggs.  Boiled (hard or soft, your choice)
