Ginisang Baguio Beans

Ginisang Baguio Beans

When I was in the Philippines Ginisang Baguio Beans or Ginisang Green Beans often found on our dinner table. It is easy to make and delicious, but every time we had it we always had fried pork chops to go with it.

Sauteed Green Beans

Sauteed Green Beans / Ginisang Baguio Beans

The way we usually cut the beans was French style, but that does take a lot of time to do so I’m doing it the easy way which tastes just as good. I cut mine an inch long and saute them like that.

I use ground beef for this rather than pork, but I would use pork if I were sauteing string beans (sitaw). This is very basic and has a very short ingredients list. Now let’s get on with it.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ Lbs. of Baguio beans (green beans)
  • 1 Lb. of Ground beef
  • 1 Small tomato sliced in small wedges
  • 1 Small onion cut in half and sliced crosswise
  • 4 Cloves of garlic peeled and smashed
  • 1 Tbs. of Patis (fish sauce)
  • 4 Tbs. of Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tsp. Msg (vetsin)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Oil for sauteing

Directions:

  1. Begin by slicing the Baguio beans about an inch long and then rinsing them well.
  2. Heat and coat wok with a tablespoon of corn oil.
  3. Then saute ground beef for 4 minutes and add the garlic.
  4. Let it cook for 2 minutes while stirring.
  5. Add the tomato and onion slices, stir, and then add the patis.
  6. Cover and cook it for 2 minutes.
  7. Add soy sauce, Baguio beans, msg, and ground black pepper. Stir, cover, and let simmer for 6 minutes on medium low heat.
  8. Remove cover and stir.
  9. Add salt and pepper if needed, then replace cover, and cook for 6 more minutes or until the beans are tender.
  10. Serve with rice and fried pork chops on the side. Enjoy!

    You’ve got some really great recipes and great photos. This is how filipino food should be presented well done. The only concern I have is that almost all of your recipe contain MSG. Filipino food don’t really need MSG to make it taste better. In the Northern regions of the Philippines, the use of MSG in not that common and their food still taste great. Keep up the good work though, hope to see more recipes in the future.

  3. Jim,

    First off, Thank you for the compliment of my recipes and pictures. You are absolutely right that Filipino food does not need any flavor enhancing seasoning to make it taste better for the simple fact that most Filipino food has strong good, flavors in it. MSG or Monosodium Glutamate is one of the highly controversial food seasonings that are out there. Often enough people address this seasoning as poison, which I find a little ridiculous and certainly pathetic. MSG is one of those seasonings that if you never used it before you won’t be looking for it, but once you do you will be looking for it. I was raised with MSG being used as a seasoning by my mother.

    So for me, not using any MSG is like not having any salt in my food. MSG is no more harmful than salt if you consume too much of it. It can raise your blood pressure and who knows what else it can do to you. I just want people to have a better understanding when it comes to MSG and not believe everything they hear about it, especially when the source of information is not necessarily credible. It is amazing that 9 out of 10 people that say MSG is bad for you don’t really know why it is bad for you, but someone had just told them that. On the other hand, some people believe to have had some unusual reaction to MSG, but this does not suggest that MSG is bad for you.

    Take a person that is lactose intolerant for example, even though this person can not consume regular milk that doesn’t mean regular milk is bad for you and no one should ever consume it, but that’s just my humble opinion about it. However if anyone does not like to use this seasoning, I would strongly advise that they don’t. It is an optional seasoning and you don’t have to have it. The only way you can tell the difference is if you are used to using MSG in your cooking.

    You mentioned your concern about MSG so that inspired me to enlighten everyone on my opinion about the subject. I posted some information regarding MSG and things people should know about it. I hope that this information will be of help so people can better understand what MSG is, and not to listen to rumors or allegations that cannot be confirmed. Please visit the link below to read more about this highly controversial seasoning. God bless you and once again thank you for your input!

    Hi, just found this site looking for the recipe to make Pork Binabad. I live in Washington State USA, have friends over there and love to cook and eat Phil food. I have just added your site to my favorite list and if I need something from the Philippines, all I have to do is go up the road to Alex’s Phil. store in Vancouver, WA. same place I also ship Balikbayan Boxes to the Philippines
    Thanks for your site, I will be using it regularely.

  15. Firechef says:

    BTW Robert, still looking for the Pork Binabad recipe, cant’t find it! Maybe you can post the recipe? I sure would appreciate it, Thanks.

  16. Hi Firechef,

    Unfortunately, I don’t have the recipe for Pork Binabad and to be honest with you I never heard of it before. Perhaps maybe you can describe what it is and I might be able to figure out which dish it was. We do call same dish different names sometimes defending on which region it’s from.

    Cheers,
