Omelette is a very well-known egg recipe all around the world. It is typically serve during breakfast but can also be enjoyed anytime of the day. Pork giniling is a popular Filipino dish made with pork and vegetables flavored with tomato sauce. Since I had a leftover pork giniling from yesterday, I decided to add a little twist into the dish to create a new one. Allow me to teach you how I turned my leftover saucy pork giniling into a brand new breakfast dish which I called tortang giniling.
