Cardillo na Ampalaya

One of my old time favorite, Cardillo nga Amargoso in Ilonggo.

1/4 lb. pork butt, sliced into strips
1/4 lb. shrimp, peeled
2 pcs. large Ampalaya (bittermelon) sliced thin
1 med. onion, sliced thin
5 cloves garlic, crushed
2 pcs. eggs, beaten
salt and groundpepper to taste.

Cooking Direction:
Saute garlic, onion and pork till golden brown. Pour 1 cup of water to the sauteed pork, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the shrimp. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer for another 5 minutes then add the slices of ampalaya and egg. Simmer for few more minutes uncovered and serve.
