A feature on the GCash app, GLife brings together a curated line-up of merchants and services into one dashboard to allow users to shop for what they need effortlessly in just a few quick taps.
Whether he’s looking for the freshest vegetables and meats or he’s on the hunt for new equipment to level up his kitchen, Ninong Ry finds it all on GLife. Take note of these tips from everyone’s favourite ninong, and get ready to elevate your home cooking!
Tip 1: Great food needs great cookware, and when you plan to make steak at home, you need a sturdy cast iron pan.
A nice, tender steak doesn’t require a trip to a fine dining restaurant; all you need is a cast iron skillet at home to cook a perfectly delicious and juicy steak.
A cast iron pan evenly distributes and retains heat, so when you cook steak, the entire surface takes on a beautifully caramelised sear.
“Lahat ng gusto mong i-sear, masesear mo ng maayos dito kumpara sa ibang material,” explains Ninong Ry. “Mas mataas ang searing, mas masarap ang luto, mas mag eenjoy ang pamilya.”
A nice cast iron pan may be purchased for PHP 630.00 from Rampage City on GLife. Through this tried and tested technique using a cast iron pan, you can begin having epic steak nights at home!
Tip 2: Make the smart choice with your sandwiches by grilling them. You can even get creative and grill with a waffle iron!
“Madalas ginagamit ko ang waffle iron ko pag sawa na akong mag pancake. Same mixture, babawasan lang ng liquid, pwedeng pwede nang maging waffle.
Ginagawa ko din minsan na sandwich bread yung mga waffle na gawa ko para maiba naman,” shares Ninong Ry.
With a waffle iron, the outside of your sandwich becomes crispy, but the centre remains soft and gooey, especially when you add lots of cheese! Ninong Ry recommends the Sonifer SF-6043, a portable waffle iron that costs only PHP 674.00 on GLife.
Tip 3: Need help in picking the right kind of beef for different dishes? Get the finest Sirloin or Salpicao cuts + homemade steak sauce from Chingolo Deli.
Chingolo Deli is Ninong Ry’s go-to deli for meats since they’re sourced from grass-fed herds. Their meats are hormone and antibiotic free, so they’re not only delicious, but also healthier for you and your family.
The Bolzico meat at Chingo Deli is a 100% Argentinian certified grass-fed Angus beef, but they also have a large selection of meats from which you can prepare a superb sirloin dish or beef salpicao dinner.
They also sell homemade steak sauce to go with their prime steak cuts. The best part? They’re all available on your GCash app thanks to GLife!
Tip 4: Make the smart choice for more savings when shopping and choose PureGo for the freshest and most affordable grocery finds.
