Black Beans With Bitter Melon and Meat

Hubby and I love beans, like pinto, navy, mungo, white and black beans. We love variety so we don't get tired eating the same beans, lol! I love beans mixed with veggies like malunggay, squash flower and bitter melon leaves or the fruit. This time, I cooked black beans with sliced bitter melon mixed with the leaves. Here's the recipe:


1 1/2 cups black beans
1/2 lbs pork, sliced (but I used ground beef instead)
10 cups water

4 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 root ginger, sliced
1 pork boullion
2 tbsp fish sauce
2 medium pcs of bitter melon, sliced
cooking oil
1/2 tsp salt

How to cook black beans with bitter melon:

1. In a pot, sauté onion, garlic and ginger in cooking oil.
2. Add the meat.and salt. Saute for another 3 minutes.
3. Then add water.
4. And the black beans.
5. Bring to a boil. Stir occasionally. Remove scums as it rises.
6. Add the pork or beef bouillon and the fish sauce.
7. Simmer until the beans are soft.
8. Add the sliced bitter melon. Simmer for 5 minutes.
9. Serve hot with steamed rice.
