Ground meat—whether beef, pork, chicken, or even fish—cooks fast and doesn’t need to tenderize because the small size of the chunks of meat is already small enough to be tender to the bite. 


That’s why it’s a favorite meat for those who lead busy lives, but still want to be able to cook something that’s homemade. You get the same lutong bahay dishes without being strapped for time.

Pork giniling is probably the most common and the most popular dish you can make with ground meat but there are ways to make it more exciting. Here are five ways to make your ground meat meals more exciting:



1 Ground Beef Quesadilla

You can definitely make any ground beef recipe to make these but with a little tweak, you can transform it into a merienda that will not only be filling but it’s also incredibly tasty. Toss in some grated cheese before folding and heating in a dry pan for the best homemade quesadilla.

2 Carne Picada

Jalapeno peppers is the key ingredient in this ground beef recipe. It gives this ground meat recipe a delicious bite that you can stuff into soft tortillas, tacos, or even topped on steamed white rice.


Ground meat has never tasted this flavorful.



3 Chili Con Carne

If you feel that tomato soup just doesn’t deliver enough heartwarming comfort, you may be more inclined to chuck in meat. We say go a step further and make chili. Make your own sour cream and grate cheese over each bowl before tucking into a bowl on a cool rainy day.
