Pork balls with Sayote and Misua

I really love the combination of beef balls (bola bola) and misua for a soup. There’s something about these two that makes me sip a couple of bowls every time this is served on the table. What I love about this dish is aside from being a delicious viand it also serves as a soup.

I was supposed to use patola when I cooked this, but since hubby and I had a hard time looking for one. We have already scouted all parts of the market but were not lucky enough to find one. So ending, I had to replace the patola with Sayote. :D

Tip for cooking this dish: Do not be tempted to put too much salt when tasting this dish because when you put the misua, it will become more salty J

What you need:

½ ground pork
1 sayote, sliced thinly
1 pack of misua
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 red onion, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 sachet of magic sarap
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup of flour
¼ teaspoon of ground black pepper
6 cups of water
2 tablespoons of canola cooking oil 

What you need to do:

* On a bowl, mix the pork, onion, eg, salt, pepper and flour. Set aside.

* Heat the pan,  pour the oil.

* Sautee the garlic. Add the beef cube, then fish sauce.

* Pour the water and let it simmer for 5 to 8 minutes.

* Scoop 1 tablespoon of the meat mixture then form it to a ball shape. Drop this to the hot water.

* Do this with the rest of the mixture.

* Put the sayote. Let it simmer for 2 minutes

* Add the misua. You may add more salt if you want it to be saltier.

Serve with love and happy eating!
