Another pork dish that reminds my childhood. My father used to cook pork giniling and sometimes he adds raisins or green peas when its available. Each time he do this dish, he would ask me to strain the achuete seeds ( annatto ) soaking in a small cup of warm water that came from the neighbors garden :)
Here's how i cooked mine :
   Ingredients -                             2 big potatoes ( diced )
                                                 1 medium carrot ( diced )
                                                    300g ground pork
                                             12-18 pcs quail eggs ( boiled )
                                               4-6 cloves of garlic ( minced )
                                                   1 small onion (chopped )
                                               1 medium tomatoe ( chopped )
