I’ve been cooking stir-fry dishes Chinese style for so long I miss the way mom does it – gulay guisado Pinoy-style (Philippine-style sauteed vegetables). This takes additional minutes of cooking time. Meat isn’t cooked over high heat for few minutes or so. Instead, cooked with its own juice over low heat until it renders fat. Here is ginisang upo with daing (sauteed bottle gourd with dried fish) – one of those simple, easy-to-cook, everyday Pinoy dishes.
