Ampalaya con Hamon

My favorite dish to make with my left over Ham from Christmas dinner. 

1 cup chopped ham
1 lb ampalaya, seeds removed and sliced thin
2 pieces egg, beaten
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 small onion, diced
1 medium size tomato, diced
1 cup water
salt and ground pepper to taste
2 tablespoon cooking oil

Cooking Direction:
Using a wok saute garlic, onions and tomatoes in cooking oil till caramelized. Add the ham till golden brown. Pour in  the cup of water and simmer. Season with salt and ground pepper. Add slices of ampalaya (bittermelon) and simmer in low heat for couple of minutes. Add the egg, simmer for few minutes then remove from heat, serve and enjoy over steam rice.
