Beef Ampalaya with Oyster Sauce

My husband's aunt from abroad sent us a can of beef in juice a few months back and he cooked it with ampalaya and oyster sauce. It was delicious so he decided to cook this again using a fresh ground beef marinated in pineapple juice. I must say that this is my husband's specialty now and it became my favorite too.


1/2 kilo of ground beef
1/2 kilo ampalaya or bitter gourd, cored and sliced to about half an inch
1 medium-sized onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, crushed
8 tbsp. oyster sauce
1 small can pineapple juice

Cooking Instruction:

Marinate ground beef in pineapple juice for 15 minutes. Sauté onion and garlic until light brown. Add the marinated ground beef together with the juice. Add the oyster sauce then cover for 5 minutes. Add the ampalaya. Add salt depending on your taste. Stir occassionaly until cooked.
