Ginataang Sitaw at Kalabasa

Here is how I cooked it. Just sautee the following ingredients.
1/4 Kl. Pork (diced)
Squash (Kalabasa)
String Beans (Sitaw)
Coconut Milk (Gata)
After adding the coconut milk, just let it simmer to cook the vegetables.

Below step by step a recipe with shrimp as ingredients. You can also substiture the coconut milk with pre packed or powdered coco milk from groceries.

1 kilo squash cut into cubes
1/4 kilo shrimp, shelled
2 onions, chopped
3 pieces tomatoes, diced
1 head garlic, minced
2 tbsps of ginger root, crushed and minced
4 tbsps of cooking or olive oil
2 tbsps of shrimp paste (bagoong)
2 cups of coconut milk
2 pcs of chilli peppers
1 cup coconut cream (kakang gata)
2 cups of chicken stock
2 tbsps of fish sauce (patis)
Cooking Instructions:
1. On a pan, heat oil. Sauté garlic, onions until light brown then add ginger, cook until onions become translucent. Add the shrimps to absorb garlic and the onions taste.
2. Add tomatoes, squash, chicken stock, shrimp paste and the coconut milk. Let boil then simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the liquid has reduced and the squash becomes tender. Don't over cook the squash to avoid being mushy.
3. Add the coconut cream, chilli peppers. Simmer for a few more minutes.
