Ginisang Ampalaya (Simple Sautéed Bitter Gourd Recipe)

7 small ampalaya
1/4 kilo of pork (cubed)
2 eggs (beaten)
1 medium onion
4 cloves of garlic (minced)

Cut the ampalaya in half, remove the seeds by scraping it with spoon and slice them in 1/8 inch-thickness diagonally.
Saute onion, garlic and pork.
Once the pork is tender, put the ampalaya. Add half cup of water and simmer for 2 minutes.
Add the egg while stirring the vegetable continuously. This will prevent the egg to form in large chunks.
Season to taste and serve with rice. 

WILL: While almost all of the children and even some of the adults I know hate bitter gourd, here I am loving it a lot! I want it almost on every week on our weekly list or at least incorporate it to the other vegetable or viand. 
     When Abbey cooking this viand, we always have a separate food. He wants the bitter gourd to be well-cooked while I want it to be stir-fry.. As in I want it raw! haha! 
     Love this meal! Healthy and yummy.
