Monggo na may Dahon ng Ampalaya

Mung bean or monggo is a very nutritious green beans from lentil family, I used the bitter melon leaves for this because my friends requested for it, but you can use various vegetables to put in mung bean dish.  Here is the easy to follow recipe.

2 cups monggo
1/4 kilo pork
2 cups bitter melon leaves ( dahon ng ampalaya)
1 onion
2 cloves garlic
salt to taste

mung bean or mongo

1. In a pot boil the monggo until it is tender, then set aside (You can use pressure cooker for faster cooking)
2. Pan fry the pork, once brownish set aside then saute the garlic and onion then add the pan fried pork and simmer for few minutes.
3. Add the cooked monggo and salt then simmer few minutes allowing all the flavors to infuse.
4.Increase the heat to avoid discoloration of the leaves when we put it, make sure it is very hot then put the leaves, do not cover the pot then turn off the heat.
5. Serve hot.
