Tortang Giniling

Tortang Giniling is the Filipino version of meat omelette. Tortang Giniling is sauteed ground meat (usually beef or pork) and vegetables like carrot, potato, bell peppers with eggs. This quick, easy and tasty omelet dish is usually eaten during breakfast and best served with banana ketchup. 

What I like about this simple omelette dish is you can either use ground beef, pork, chicken, seafood and even leftover fish. It can be served over rice or serve as a sandwich patty. It is simply good, delicious and kids-friendly. You can also saute the meat and vegetables a day before then mix with eggs, flour and cornstarch when ready to fry. 

This simple Tortang Giniling recipe is worth a try. It's like putting a twist to that traditional egg omelet. Make this today and share with family and friends.
