Recipes Tips

If you want to make this dish even more authentic, try using Filipino-style spaghetti sauce instead of tomato sauce. You can find it at most Asian grocery stores or online. You can also add hot dogs or sliced ham to the sauce for an even meatier dish.

When cooking the ground beef, make sure to break it up into small pieces using a wooden spoon or spatula. This will help it cook evenly and prevent large clumps from forming.

If you want to make this dish healthier, try using whole wheat spaghetti instead of regular spaghetti. You can also add more vegetables to the sauce, such as zucchini or eggplant.
