Chayote Guisado / Sayote Guisado (Sautéed Chayote)

Chayote Guisado or Sayote Guisado (Sautéed Chayote) is another vegetable Filipino recipe that I love to cook.

Here in Canada, finding a Chayote is not that difficult because they are now commonly sold in most known grocery stores like No Frills, Price Choppers and FreshCo. But few year back, I can’t find any chayote in our local community and I have to drive an hour drive just to have it.

But recently, I was surprise to see chayote in most shelf to known large grocery store in town. Another funny thing was, the cashier didn’t know it’s name and it took her a long time to figure it out. She even call her co-employee for help and finally the chayote that we love was under squash-vegetable category and was called chayote squash.

Anyway, we’re glad that chayote vegetable is just a few minutes drive away.

Ingredients :

  • 2 to 4 pieces chayote squash, pared, seeded and sliced
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 lb. pork, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. patis (fish sauce)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • water

  4. Pour in water and bring to boil. Cover, lower the heat and let it simmer until chayote is tender.
