How to make Filipino Spaghetti


  • 1 lb ground beef

  • 1 lb ground pork

  • 1/2 lb hotdogs(filipino hotdog), diagonally sliced

  • 1 medium can of tomato sauce

  • 1 cup of banana ketchup (could be regular or spicy-depends how you want them)

  • 2 tablespoons brown or white sugar

  • 1/4 cup red bell peppers, chopped

  • 1/4 cup onions, chopped

  • 1 head garlic, minced

  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil

  • 3 tablespoons of soy sauce

  • 3 tablespoons of sweet pickle relish

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 cup grated mild cheddar cheese (half used for cooking and the other half for toppings)

  • 1 lb spaghetti noodles

Spaghetti Cooking Instructions:

  • Sauté garlic and onions in olive oil.

  • Add ground beef, ground pork, bell pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes until water comes out of meat.

  • Add tomato sauce, soy sauce, banana ketchup, salt and pepper to taste then let simmer for another 10 minutes

  • Add sugar, cheese (1/2 cup only), relish and hotdogs. Continue to simmer (low fire) for an additional 15 minutes or until color becomes orange red. The longer it simmers in low fire, the better.

  • Boil spaghetti noodles according to package instructions. Pinch of salt is okay. Don't forget to pour a little bit of olive oil so that the pasta won't stick after it's cooked.

  • Serve with grated cheese on top.
