Pork Giniling

Pork Giniling is an excellent Filipino recipe.  It is made of ground pork, potatoes, carrots, peas, and raisins.  Other versions of this recipe don’t have raisins but for me, raisins is what makes it better.  The sweet and salty combination is just great!  Best to eat with white rice.  Simple yet very tasty!
