Sauteed Chayote with Pork and Tomato is a simple dish that can be made during lunchtime. It is quick, easy, and delicious. This is also known as ginisang sayote. You can make this with or without pork. Sometimes I don’t use any meat at all, and there are instances when I use seafood such as shrimp. If you are always on the go, but still want to prepare home cooked meals, then this recipe is for you.
Cooking Sauteed Chayote with Pork and Tomato is easy peasy. Simply saute garlic, onion, and tomato, and then add the pork. Once the pork is cooked, add the chayote and seasonings. Don’t worry, every step is still detailed in the recipe below for your convenience.
I like my Sauteed Chayote with Pork and Tomato cooked with extra broth to the point that it is somewhat soupy — like what you see in the picture. Pouring some broth over rice and eating the dish altogether increases my appetite. I remember the days when I eat in a “carinderia” in Manila. I usually request for broth and sauces to be poured over rice when I order my meal. It serves two purposes, I think: one is to make my dish more flavorful and appetizing, while the other reason has something to do with being full and satisfied with the entire meal without spending too much. A single cup of rice is not enough for me during those days; I eat at least 2 cups. Since having some sauce poured over the rice makes the rice more tasty, I can have more than 1 cup of rice with just a single order of a certain dish. Sometimes, I can even request for a small bowl of soup for free. Those were the good old days.
