Here is the recipe for Sisig, a Filipino dish made with spicy and crispy pork.
500g pork (shoulder, belly or loin)
1 large onion, finely chopped
3-4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
3-4 green chiles, finely chopped
2 tablespoons coconut vinegar or rice vinegar
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup of water
1 lemon, cut into wedges
Salt to taste.
2 eggs, optional
Vegetable oil for frying
Start by boiling the pork in lightly salted water for about 30 to 45 minutes or until tender. Drain the water and leave the meat to cool. Cut the meat into small cubes (about 1cm x 1cm).
In a frying pan, heat some vegetable oil and fry the pork until crispy and golden brown. Drain the excess oil and set the meat aside.
In a large frying pan, heat some vegetable oil and saute the onion, garlic and chillies until soft and golden brown.
Add the pork to the pan along with the coconut or rice vinegar, soy sauce, tomato ketchup, brown sugar, black pepper, and water. Stir well and cook for 5-7 minutes or until the sauce has reduced and blended well with the meat.
At this point, if desired, add the eggs. Crack the eggs into the pan and stir constantly until the eggs are cooked through and well blended with the meat.
Serve the Sisig hot with the lemon wedges and white rice.
Enjoy your meal!
