Sigarilyas Gising gising is a Filipino vegetable stew composed of winged beans, ground pork, and long green chillies. These ingredients are cooked in coconut milk. If you can recall, I published a gising gising recipe a few years back for the same dish that makes use of green beans or Baguio beans. This particular recipe is a variation or another version.
It might look simple to prepare sigarilyas gising gising. It is actually simple and easy, but there is a tip that I want to share to make your dish a success. This tip came from by mom, which is an expert cook. She is one of my influences in cooking. Try to cook winged beans (or sigarilyas) a little bit longer because this vegetable has this funny smell and taste when undercooked. It will be better if you braise it (this means to cook for a longer period) to neutralize aroma and taste. It goes out after a while, so better follow the recipe as directed ?
I used long green chillies for this recipe. These are the same kind of chillies that are commonly used to cook sinigang. If you want your dish to be more spicy, use Thai chillies or siling labuyo instead. Note that you can reduce the amount of ground meat; you can also use ground chicken if desired. I used fish sauce as seasoning. You can also use shrimp paste or bagoong alamang to add flavor to this dish.
I had 2 cups of rice when I had this because it is so irresistible. Please be forewarned especially if you are trying to control your rice intake. Happy cooking and eating!
