Easy Cooking (Lean Ground Pork with GreenPeas & Carrots)

Working? Either you have a family to feed or not and need something easy to cook after a busy,hard day from work? This Lean ground pork with Green Peas and Carrots is a definite winner. Why? Aside from it is so easy to make, the left over taste better the next day or the left over can be cooked again as a different dish. This is how versatile this dish is. Before anything, my husband and son loves this dish, especially my unico hijo. He loves the green peas and carrots so hey as long as he is eating vegetables I'll be cooking it. First need to buy lean ground pork a bit expensive than regular ground pork but less fat so its more healthy. Onion, garlic and potatoes all chopped using the food processor. Food processor is a life saver when you are in a rush. Anyway I used Pre-Shredded carrots and I use 1 small bag of green peas thawed already. Boil ground pork, just enough water to cook it. When cooked set aside. Saute garlic and onion. Add chopped potatoes and ground pork till brown. Add green peas,carrots, salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot with steamed rice or green salad. The next day you could make it as " Giniling na torta" here they call it Egg Fritta Torta can be baked or cooked in a pan.

Just beat eggs add left over ground pork with greenpeas and fry it in a pan with EVOO, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and voila one hearty breakfast. Hmmm ketchup and hot sauce would be perfect with it too. Try baking it and see if you'll Egg Fritta Torta version.

Still have some left over? Hmm cooked some farfalle pasta or bowtie pasta, or any of your favorite pasta. When done mixed in the lean ground pork dish some butter and parmasean cheese voila...instant take to work lunch...

So now you have easy meal to prepare after busy day at work, easy to prepare breakfast, and easy to prepare take to work lunch, versatile dish? Yes. And your loveones will feel really loved with all your hard work *wink.
