‘Giniling’ in Pork Giniling Recipe
The term ‘Giniling’ in the Filipino language translates to ‘minced’ or ‘ground’ in English. Therefore, when we talk about ‘Pork Giniling,’ we refer to a dish made with ground pork as the main ingredient. Giniling can be considered the Filipino version of American ground meat dishes, like sloppy joes or chili. In the Philippines, ground meat (pork, beef, or chicken) is often cooked with various ingredients such as tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, and bell peppers. This dish is then simmered in tomato sauce or banana ketchup, making it a savory, slightly sweet, and hearty meal.
