Apparently the recipe I played with this week is close to the jollybee spaghetti recipe, I'd never heard of it until last week but it is very much a comfort food style meal.
500gms minced pork
4 rashers streaky bacon, fried and chopped
4 hot dog sausages, sliced
1 tin chopped tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbsp oregano
2 tbsp tomato puree
1 onion, chopped
1 pt chicken stock
salt and black pepper
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the chopped onion until clear, add the mince and stir until browned. Add the oregano, garlic and tomato puree and stir thoroughly then add the sausage and bacon cook for five minutes. Add the chopped tomato and season well then pour in the stock, bring to the boil and simmer for 30 minutes.
Serve with spaghetti
I've always found spaghetti as a tasty and frustratingly messy dish. This version with the bacon and sausage has extra 'comfort' elements which makes it even tastier. Apparently the jollybee description is akin to a Filipino spaghetti recipe.
I made a slight alteration in that I used fried and chopped bacon rashers instead of minced ham. It is my opinion that minced pork and ham are too similar to compliment each other whereas the crunchy bacon rashers add texture and flavour.
