Ginisang Pechay (Bok choy)
I have said this before: Ground beef sauteed with salt and pepper (no other spices), boiled potatoes and brocolli is a typical favorite meal of my husband, much in the same way that fried fish, plain rice and tomatoes or camote tops is a typical favorite Filipino meal.
Because of this, I often would cook this for my husband when I have a Filipino type of meal for my kids and I. Quite expectedly, he would always have about half of the ground beef leftover. This I make into torta, or re-sautee with garlic, onions, and tomatoes, and add beef broth and greens, usually native pechay (bok choy) cut into strips, and with the optional addition of sotanghon noodles, season with salt and pepper as needed. My kids and I love this (in fact, they sometimes request that I make this. They are just fond of soup-ish veggie-dominant dish.)
Need I post a recipe here???...Nah...
