Happy 2022 loungers! Time flies, and today is the first day of mid-January 2022. Can you imagine? Anyhow, let me share one of my favorite Asian Filipino dishes. Believe it or not, my lovely partner used to despise bitter gourd, but after tasting this dish, he now enjoys it.
Ampalaya is a Filipino word for bitter gourd. Bitter gourd has numerous health benefits due to its high concentration of nutrients such as fiber, vitamins C and A, folate, potassium, zinc, and iron. It can also help lower blood sugar levels. At the same time, red meat, such as minced beef, is high in protein, zinc, vitamin B3, and B12. Minced beef and bitter gourd are excellent combinations for increasing zinc and iron levels in the body.
Let’s dig into the recipe!
