I Learned How to Cook Ampalaya Con Carne Today

First attempt: overcooked but tastes good
Yesterday, I went to Sunshine Supermarket at Abanao Square and bought some fresh ampalaya only to find out early morning today that I don't know what to do with it. I mean I don't know how to cook it -well, I know how to cook "ampalaya with egg" but my taste bud is already used to it and I don't feel like cooking it because it will only cause pimples (I'm trying to lessen "oil" intake this past few months -meaning no "frieds" just to make sure my face is free from stubborn pimples). And in effort to "learn" how to cook it - this time differently - I asked one of my best friends, Google, and amazingly I got one of the best answers. And it's worth blogging for: How to Cook Ampalaya Con Carne.
