Add your sayote and saute it well. At this point, the sayote strips are still hard and crunchy which is why you need to add a little bit of water and let it simmer. The last step would be adding your whisked eggs and stirring the dish gently until the eggs become small yellow curdles.  That’s how easy the ginisang sayote with itlog is!
