Alugbati Recipe

A simple dish that reminds me of my home town, Iloilo City.
Ingredients:
1 lb ground beef
5 cups cleaned alugbati leaves
1 lb squash, cut in cubes
2 pcs eggplant, bite size
4 pcs garlic cloves
1 small onion, sliced thin
1 tablespoon cooking oil
2 cups water
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Cooking Direction:
Heat cooking oil in a wok in medium heat. Saute garlic and onion till caramelized. Add ground beef and saute till golden brown. Once ground beef turns golden brown add the squash and eggplant. Stir fry for few minutes. Pour water into the mixture and allow it to boil. Season with salt and ground pepper and continue boiling for few more minutes. Now add the alugbati leaves. Bring to boil. Once it starts boiling reduce heat to medium low. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove cover and serve.
