Food Trip Friday---Torta

As I researched on its origins, I found out that there are different kind of Tortas.
Cubana: Inspired by the popular Cuban sandwich. Typically includes a wide variety of ingredients: ham, white cheese, scrambled eggs, sausage.
Common ingredients may include, but are not limited to: Shredded meat
In the Philippines, 'torta' refers to a kind of omelette made with eggs, ground meat and sometimes minced onion and potato.

What You Will Be Needing:

5 eggs (beaten)

1/2 K ground meat (shredded meat)

salt and pepper

1 medium green bell pepper (chopped into small pieces)

1 white onion (minced)

4 medium potatoes (chopped into small pieces)

Olive oil (for sauteing)

cooking oil ( frying)

How To:

In a wok, saute onions, bell pepper, potatoes and meat

add a little water and simmer until cooked

add some salt and pepper on both beaten eggs and suated meat

Then pour sauted ingredients with the beaten eggs

In a frying pan, heat cooking oil

Using a ladle, fry palm-size omelettes

Turn upside down until golden brown.

I like it with catsup!
