  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2 pounds ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 3 large Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and cubed
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and cubed
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a pan over medium heat, heat oil. 
  • Add onions and garlic and cook until softened.
  •  Add ground pork and cook, breaking into pieces with the back of a spoon, until lightly browned. Drain any excess grease.
  • Add fish sauce and continue to cook for about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes and cook, mashing with the back of a spoon, until softened and release juices. 
  • Add water and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and continue to simmer until meat is tender and fully cooked. Add more water in 1/2 cup increments as necessary to maintain 1 cup of liquid.
  • Add potatoes, carrots, and raisins and cook until liquid is mostly reduced, vegetables are tender, and raisins are softened. 
  • Add bell peppers and cook until tender-crisp. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.


  • This giniling uses fresh tomatoes so the sauce is pretty thin and light. For a thicker and richer sauce, stir in one tablespoon of tomato paste.
