How to make Gising Gising. Gising-Gising or Gising Gising is a spicy Filipino dish originating from the provinces of Nueva Ecija and Pampanga. It is traditionally made with chopped beans, and cooked in coconut milk with ground pork, chili peppers and shrimp paste. Gising-Gising is a quick and easy Filipino dish. It is a delicious vegetable dish packed with lots of flavor. Easy to make and light in flavor.
Winged beans or sigarilyas is also used when making Gising Gising and same with sitaw or long beans and kangkong. Shrimp paste or bagoong alamang is used to enhance the flavor and chili peppers to make it spicier so feel free to adjust the chili to your taste. You can also use chopped pork or even ground chicken if ground pork is not available. Ginger is also optional when cooking Gising Gising but from my experience, ginger do makes a difference and made this dish more flavorful.
