ala jollibee spaghetti

This is post is especially for Sharon, one of my avid blog fans, lol!

She asked me to share the ala-jollibee spag recipe that I learned from my Pinay friends here in Taiwan. To make it easier for me, I tried to search the recipe in the web (which I usually do, I even checked from the Jollibee websited if they have it published but of course, they’ll not do that otherwise, their spag will not be “unique” anymore) but didn’t really find one. I grabbed a near resemblance and did 50% editing. Lol!

Sha, I’ll be happy to hear from you later that this recipe has satisfied your craving, if I may say so, for JB-spag.

PS. Agluto ka ah. Pinagrigatak daytoy, hahaha.

Ingredients

  • 1 kg. spaghetti noodles
  • 1 kg. ground beef or pork ( 1/2 kg could be enough though)
  • 1/4 kg. hotdogs, diagonally sliced (hotdogs here are different from the Filipino versions and I don’t think they will go with the sauce so I skip this ingredient)
  • 1 kg. tomato sauce ( if you can find banana ketchup, the better)
  • Evaporated Filled Milk 370 mL or the biggest can size
  • Sweetened Condensed Filled Milk 168mL or the smallest can size (I think they come in three sizes, 370mL is the L, 250mL is the M and 168mL is the S)
  • 2 green bell peppers, diced (I also skip this ingredient. Diced carrots could be added as well)
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 head garlic, minced (the more the better, I love the scent it generates when it is being sauteed)
  • 3 tablespoons of cooking oil (again, I recommend Olive oil. Maybe adding butter will help, I never really tried it, hhmmnnn, I can try next time)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese (or more, depends on your preference. Cheddar cheese is recommended for a creamier taste.)

Instructions

  • Cook spaghetti noodles according to package instructions. There you go; it is not stated “cook noodles as usual anymore” hahaha.
  • While cooking the noodles, boil the ground meat in a separate pan. Simmer for at least 10mins. Drain afterwards. You can separate the “soup” if you desire and have it used in another recipe later. (It can be stored in the freezer for future use huh!).
    • PS. Others don’t boil the meat separately, its your choice.
  • In a separate, sauté garlic and onions in cooking oil.
  • Add ground meat and cook until the meat turns light brown. Since it has been boiled earlier; that is, if applicable, it can quickly turn into light brown.
  • Add bell pepper and/or carrots.
  • Add tomato sauce, condensed milk, evap milk, salt, pepper to taste then let simmer for 10 minutes. (Tantiya-tantiya kadi will do. Balance the sweet-sour taste. I think we look for that sweet taste, right?).
  • Add hotdogs (if applicable).
  • Add the cheese (Yup, it makes a difference when you add the cheese while cooking the sauce. Make sure you check how salty the cheese is so you would know how much salt you’d add otherwise, it may turn out so salty. If that happens, you can neutralize it by adding sugar or milk if you have extra on hand)
  • Mix sauce and noodles. (They can be served separately of course). Top with grated cheese.

Yummy! You can have toasted garlic bread along with it. HHmmmnn, I’m suddenly hungry.
