How to cook Gising gising Sigarilyas

Gising gising means “wake-up wake-up” in the Filipino language.  The dish will definitely wake up your senses when you eat it because it’s too spicy, that is why it is called Gising gising.  Tried to search the web but I can’t find the origin of this dish. Gising Gising Recipe is similar to the Bicolano’s favorite dish Laing and Bicol express .  They used pork and green beans in the original recipe for this dish but here we made a twist and used beef and winged beans or Sigarilyas, the result is excellently delicious.

I suggest you try this Gising Gising Recipe with Sigarilyas, I’m sure you will like it too.

    Sounds good although I may not use so much chili so it is not too spicy

    Gising gising actually translates to “tear to pieces” in Bicol. The green vegi can be replaced with string beans. What you will appreciate is the flavor of the coconut milk like Vietnamese or Thai flavor. I don’t know to cook it, but I’ve tried it from my mom
