Directions
  1. Prepare the ingredients. Peel the squash if you don’t like the skin on. Carve off the seeds and the soft flesh using a spoon. Leave only the solid part of the squash. Cut into desired sizes. Chop the string beans into smaller strings, about 2 inches in length. Wash under running water for a few seconds, then set aside.
  2. Cook the ground meat. In a pan under medium heat, add two tablespoons of cooking oil. Sauté garlic and onions, until onions are translucent and soft. Add the ground pork, season with salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, then stir. Mix the ingredient well. Cook until the pork is no longer pink in color.
  3. Add the vegetables. First, add the squash, since it takes longer to cook. Season again with salt and pepper, and sauté for few more seconds. Add half a cup of water, dash of Knorr liquid seasoning, a tablespoon of soy sauce, and switch the heat to low. Let it simmer until the squash is fork tender. Add water as necessary. Add the string beans, bell pepper, and a pinch of Ginisa mix. Cook for a minute, then add the sesame oil, and mix a few times. Turn off the heat.
  4. Serve and enjoy! Just transfer to a serving plate, and it’s ready to be served.
