July 2010 Meal #4: Pork & Squash

Meal #4 is a Filipino dish that I don't get to make too often since it requires me to find the main vegetable at an Asian market.  This was a pork and tabungao (white opo squash) dish that is really easy to make and tastes so good over hot rice.  Sometimes I just slice the the squash or run it through a shredder, it all depends on how I want to eat the squash.  If you are wondering what the squash looks like here is a picture of it below:

2 lbs. pork, chopped
2 tbsp. garlic, minced
2 medium sized tomatoes, chopped
1/2 onion, diced
2 small or 1 medium squash, sliced & seeds removed
patis (fish sauce)

Brown pork and garlic in about 1 tbsp. oil.  Add onions till tender.  Add sliced squash, tomatoes, and patis (this you will add  to your taste).  Mix well and let simmer until squash is tender.  Add pepper to taste and more patis to your taste.
