Ginisang Upo Recipe

Ginisang Upo is truly a dish close to our hearts. We have grown up eating this with our family at least once a week because other than it is delicious and filling, Ginisang Upo is economical as well. With upo being its main ingredient, Ginisang Upo can be made heavier by adding protein and other vegetables into the mix such as pork, shrimp, and tomatoes. Undeniably, by adding some meat and seafood onto it, Ginisang Upo becomes more hearty, satisfying, and flavorful too!
