Ginisang Munggo is an authentic Filipino dish often serve with Pan Fried Fish or Tinapa. While this is consider as an easy recipe, the way other Filipino prepares their Mung beans varies.

  1. In a medium saucepan, cover the mung beans with water and bring to boil. Cook beans until tender around 30-40 minutes.

  2. In a separate pan, saute garlic in an olive oil or vegetable oil until golden brown.

  3. Add onion, tomatoes and pork. Let it simmer until pork is tender. If you are adding shrimp, you may add at this point.

  4. Season with the fish sauce.

  5. Add the cooked Mung(munggo) beans and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
