Tortang Giniling – According to Wikipedia,“torta  is a Spanish, Italian and Portugese (and also French, tarte ) word with a wide array of culinary meanings.” It usually refers to flat bread, sweet cakes and other pastries. Here in the Philippines, especially in Luzon, “tortarefers to a kind of omelette made with eggs, ground meat and sometimes minced onion and potato.” Giniling, on the other hand, is the Tagalog word for ground meat.

In other words, tortang giniling is sauteed ground meat (usually pork or beef) with eggs. This is an easy to prepare dish usually eaten during breakfast. This goes well with garlic fried rice or sinangag.
