Twelve years ago while visiting my eldest daughter at school in Manila, a Yaya (carer) was feeding her alaga (child) with soup and rice.  The soup was noticeably green with bits of meat in it.  Intrigued by the colour and the greasy appearance of the soup, I moved closer towards her and sneaked a look at the plastic container half empty with the greasy soup. This is my adaptation of that dish.

½ kg pork minced
3 cups sliced pak choy or pechay
Garlic, minced
1 large onion, minced
2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 litre water
Salt and fish sauce to taste
1 chicken stock cube
Cooking oil

Saute garlic, add onion and continue frying until soft.
Add tomatoes and continue cooking until mushy.
Add pork stirring and breaking up lumps until the meat is dry.
Pour water, chicken cube, fish sauce; adjust taste with salt and pepper let boil until meat is cooked.
Add pak choy or pechay and cook for 5 minutes.
