Alogbati with Ground Beef

I can't remember the last time I had "fresh picked" alogbati for lunch till we visited my Mom last weekend. She grows her own alogbati, tomatoes, pandan, chili peppers and many more in little planters so I made sure I took some home. It can't get any fresher than this. Sweet!

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 small onion, sliced thin

1/2 lb sitaw, cut into 2 inches

1/2 lb kalabasa, cut into bite size
