Ingredients for Beef Giniling Recipe

A pack of Knorr Beef Cubes
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • ½ pc onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 200 g ground beef
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 pc Knorr Beef Cube
  • 1 pc potato, diced
  • 1 pc carrot, diced
  • ¼ cup water
  • 6 pcs quail eggs, boiled and peeled

How to Cook a Beef Giniling Recipe

Step 1

Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Sauté onion and garlic until fragrant. Add ground beef and cook until lightly browned.

Step 2

Add tomato paste, Knorr Beef Cube, potato, carrot, and water. Simmer until the potatoes are tender.

Step 3

Add quail eggs. Serve hot.

If you prefer a beef giniling recipe with no tomato sauce, you can substitute it with soy sauce or Knorr Liquid Seasoning. Or you can omit it altogether, making the dish less likely to spoil. Some families also prefer an umami-filled beef giniling with oyster sauce. Go ahead and add a tablespoon or more, depending on your preference. 

And because this beef giniling recipe is wonderfully versatile, you’re free to add veggies, like peas, broccoli, cabbage, or baby corn. You can also swap the quail for regular chicken eggs if this is the ingredient you have on hand. Got leftovers? Toss them in tomorrow’s omelet, scrambled eggs, or tortang talong.
