How to prepare a "sosyal" meal good for 5 people with a budget of P150

12:17 AM

Because of a basketball match , all of a sudden I have some friends coming over and I had no money and time to prepare for lunch. All I had was P150 in my pocket. So I had to think how to expand my money to cover their hungry stomachs. I went to the "talipapa" or flea market and after 10 minutes I was on my way home to cook. With less than P150 I was able to buy:


Ingredients: 

1. A bundle of Baguio beans, 
2. dried shrimp, 
3. Red bell pepper,
4. Sayote, 
5. Canned corned beef 
6. Two fresh eggs.
7. 3 garlic cloves
8. 1 onion bulb
9. 2 pcs tomatoes


Here's what I did: 

DISH 1
Boil the Sayote, dried shrimp and Baguio beans until all are half cooked. Take it out and drain excess water.


Dish 2
Saute the chopped red bell pepper and tomatoes with garlic and onions, then add boiled shrimp, mix well then add the Baguio beans. 


DISH 3
Simply fry the eggs with the corned beef, make sure the consistency is dry.


A CHEAP BUT DELICIOUS MEAL!

After cooking all three dishes, when you put them all together here is the outcome

  1. wow.. this is great for P150.00; but how much did it cost to buy corned beef??? surely it must be more than P150.00 (or did you take this from your pantry reserves sent to you?) I wish I can prepare this for the budgeted price of P150.00 and cater to 5 people.

  4. I say your video on youtube about how to have one week ulam for less than a hundred pesos. It's a great and useful idea. Many Filipinos would prefer to do that to save money, and for some to keep tight their budget.

    For me this is a good idea since I always travel to Cebu, and there are times when you need to tight the belt in dire times.
