Recipe Ingredients for Sauteed Chayote Squash with Ground Pork

2 tablespoons light olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
4 ounces pork, ground
4 chayote, cubed
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Recipe Directions for Sauteed Chayote Squash with Ground Pork

  1. In a skillet or wok under medium heat, add olive oil then saute garlic until fragrant, onions until translucent, tomatoes until soft.

  2. Add ground pork and saute until cooked through, about 5 minutes.

  3. Add cubed chayote squash pieces, season with salt and pepper. You may stir-fry chayote for 3 minutes (crisp-tender) or cook covered for 10 minutes (chayote will exude water making a saucy dish - the way I like it).

  4. Serve over steamed rice.
