Carioca as how Caviteños call it or more commonly called as "Giniling" by Filipinos is made of ground pork, potatoes, green peas and bell pepper. It is not only a viand but it is also a favorite bread filling among Caviteños.

1 lb ground pork
4 medium potatoes, 1/4 inch cubes
1 small can green peas, drained
1 small red bell pepper, finely-sliced
5 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium onion, finely-sliced
1 tbsp oil
fresh ground pepper
salt and pepper
soy sauce
achuete oil (optional)


Saute onion & garlic in oil. Add pork & brown, making sure to separate ground pork thoroughly. Add enough soy sauce, cover & let simmer over med-heat/flame for 10 mins. Add potatoes & red bell pepper. Mix & cook for another 10 mins. Add canned green peas and enough achuete oil to color. Salt and pepper to taste.
