In a large pan add oil and brown pork on all sides. Remove and set aside. Add another tablespoon of oil if needed and sauté garlic until golden brown. Then add onions, ginger and tomato and sauté for 2 minutes or until the onions hit that shiny stage. Add the pork back along with msg, sugar, shrimp, shrimp paste (bagoong alamang), and vinegar and let it simmer for 2 minutes. Next add water and increase the heat to bring it to a boil. At this point you may add the vegetables, string beans, egg plant, and squash and lower the heat to medium low. Simmer for 12 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Serve with rice and enjoy!
