Sauteed Ampalaya with Corned Beef

To be honest, I wasn’t fond of eating ampalaya (bitter gourd or bitter melon) when I was young, but I started liking it when I became an adult. Is that adulting or what?

At home, I usually cook sauteed ampalaya with eggs and ground meat or corned beef. The corned beef version is what I’m going to present in this recipe post.


How do you remove the bitterness of ampalaya? Soak the sliced ampalaya in salted water for a few minutes, then rinse with water before cooking.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:
1 large ampalaya, thinly sliced
1 medium can of corned beef, any brand
2 eggs, beaten
½ cup of water
3 tablespoons cooking oil
1 medium onion, minced
3 cloves of garlic, crushed and minced
2 medium tomatoes, diced
8g Maggi Magic Sarap (optional)
Salt
Pepper

Cooking Instructions:
1. Heat oil in a pan.
2. Saute onions, garlic, and tomatoes.
3. Put the beaten eggs, stir, and cook for a few minutes.
4. Mix in the corned beef and simmer for 5 minutes.
5. Add the ampalaya slices and water.
6. Season with salt and pepper (and Maggi Magic Sarap if you want).
7. Cover the pan and finish cooking over medium heat.
8. Serve with rice.

Do you know tha ampalaya is considered a super food? The leaves and fruits of ampalaya are rich in vitamins and minerals that our body needs. Ampalaya has medicinal properties, too. It has blood sugar-lowering effects, which make them ideal for patients with diabetes. Juice made from the leaves of ampalaya can also help cure cough, reduce fever, and lower cholesterol levels, among others.

What’s your favorite ampalaya dish?
