Picadillo Soup

My grandmother made this a couple of weekends ago and my little one absolutely loved it. She got the recipe from a mini-magazine named "Yummy". Since it was so easy to make, cheap and delicious, I decided to ask the recipe from her to share with you.

Myra's Picadillo Soup
Serves 4
Prep time 10 minutes
Cooking time 30 minutes

1t oil
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 small white onion, chopped
1/2k ground beef
1t salt
dash ground pepper
6c water
3 small potatoes, diced
4 bunches petchay Tagalog or bok choy, roughly chopped
1 to 2T fish sauce (patis, or adjust your salt)

  1. In a pot, heat the oil then sauté garlic and onions. Add ground beef and cook until browned. Make sure to break the meat into small bits.
  2. Season with salt and pepper. Lower the heat to medium-low and simmer for 5-10 minutes or until the meat is cooked through and the extra liquid is reduced. Add water and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the potatoes and let it boil for 5 minutes. Drop in the pechay then turn off the heat. Stir in 1 tablespoon fish sauce (or more salt). Add more fish sauce (salt) as needed. Serve hot.
