Sisig is a popular Filipino dish made up of a chopped pig’s face and ears, along with a small amount of chicken liver.
There are other variations of sisig depending on your preference. You can make it with chicken, fish or squid.
If you don’t like to eat any pig’s face or ear, ehem, like my Fiancé 🙄 , you can substitute these parts with a pork belly. Okay. Okay. I can’t blame him. He is Dutch and he is not used to eating different body parts, unlike us Filipinos. Hehe! 😆
Here is my version of a simple Pork Sisig:
And yes, without the pig’s face-slash-ears!
1 lb pork belly
1/2 cup chicken liver
1 large onion, minced or chopped
1/2 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup butter
2 tbsp chili flakes
3 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground pepper
3-4 tbsp mayonnaise
1 piece lemon or calamansi
1. Grill the pork belly until done. (You can use an electronic griller if you have.)
2. Chop the cooked pork belly into small cubes.
3. Melt the butter in a pan and add 1/2 of the onion once hot.
4. Sprinkle the ginger powder, stir.
5. Add the chicken liver.
6. Put in the chopped pork and cook for 15 minutes or until tender.
7. Pour the soy sauce and garlic powder. Mix well.
8. Add the chili flakes and pepper. (Add more depending on your spice preference)
9. Pour the mayonnaise and top with a raw egg.
10. Add the remaining onion and chives.
11. Serve with lemon or calamansi.
***You can mince the onion if you like, so it will mix well with the pork. I like it chopped this way. 😳
***You can add one more egg for more taste.
***You can leave out the chicken liver. It won’t affect the taste.
