Pork giniling is a popular Filipino dish that is sold at roadside carinderias, or food stalls. Carinderias are small restaurant-style eateries that serve rice meals and other made-to-order dishes.

The word "giniling" refers to any ground meat. In this recipe, I made a sweet and savory saucy pork giniling. My version of this stewed ground pork and vegetable dish is flavored with a Filipino sweet tomato sauce.
