Easy and Delicious Stove Top Pork Sisig

My unico loves Pork Sisig especially if it is sizzling hot.  It is one of our favorite when eating out in a filipino restaurant.

There are lots of variety now of Sizzling Sisig like, chicken, pork and even fish.  We have tried all of them but Sizzling Pork Sisig is our all time favorite.

My aunt also makes a really excellent sisig. She prepares it like  the good old ways, from boiling to grilling and frying and then adding spices that she mixed and the end result absolutely delicious.

And so since my son enjoy them decided to look for recipe that is easy to make and that I could tweak and make some changes. So instead of grilling..i'll be cooking it on stove to make it easy…end result my family loves it.

Below is the picture of my Easy and delicious stove top Pork Sisig.


Pork - ( I used liempo and pork butt) in the Original recipe..you have to use pork ears,cheek and pork picnic cut)

2 large onion chopped

jalepeno or siling labuyo

salt and pepper to taste

calamansi or lemon to have a citrus flavor


Boil meat till tender. Then fry till crispy and golden brown. Chopped meat.  When done put in a bowl add all ingredients and mix.  Serve in a hot plate or sizzling plate.  Enjoy while it is hot.

Ginisang Kalabasa or Sauteed Kabocha Squash

For easy to prepare dish for today, decided to cook something healthy that every one in my family will enjoy. Like I said in my previous post, I just recently got back on my feet and still slowly getting back to my usual day to day activities. So for today I made some easy, healthy and delicious Ginisang Kalabasa with Dahon ng ampalaya or Sautéed Kabocha Squash with Bittermellon leaves.  Healthy because  squash is a good source of vitamin A and dietary fiber, then the ampalaya leaves regulates your blood and the green beans- good source of protein. You could eat it as is or eat it with some brown or  white steamed rice. Below is the picture of the Ginisang Kalabasa as I just cooked it.

Kabocha Squash cut into desired bite size but make sure it's not too small or else it will get over cooked easily.

Garlic chopped
Tomatoes chopped
Ground meat or cubed meat optional
Water just enough to simmer the veggies
Salt n pepper to taste

You could either add meat or fish flakes to this dish or not at all (optional)
If adding meat, boil meat till tender then set aside.
Sautéed onion, Garlic and tomatoes then add meat. Sauté till meat is brown then add veggies and then water. Simmer  and when almost done  if adding fish not meat..add the cooked flake fish…simmer for few more minutes . Serve hot by it self or serve it with steamed white or brown rice ... Enjoy

Binagoongang Baboy with talong or Pork in sautéed Shrimp Paste with Eggplant

Binagoongang Baboy or pork in sautéed shrimp paste is a Filipino dish that's very popular. It is delicious especially if you squeezed some calamansi or lemon on it and eat it with some steamed rice and some steamed vegetables ( okra,bokchoy and green beans).  This dish is salty, sour, sweet, spicy and rich so if you are watching your salt intake , blood pressure and cholesterol this is not for you. Beware also that it has a very strong smell that to some people it is too overwhelming. I guess it depends how it's prepared. In my case I use plenty of onion, garlic ,tomatoes and to lessen the saltiness and cholesterol, I normally add some eggplant so it's not all the shrimp paste and meat. Plus we always have some steamed vegetables when we eat it ..Oh and the 1 to 2 head of garlic is good for blood pressure.


Onion 2 chopped
1-2  head of Garlic or more chopped
4 tomatoes chopped
2.2 lb of pork meat cube
Siling labuyo or hot chili peppers
2-3 long eggplants sliced diagonally
Sugar 1 table spoon or more according to taste
Evoo or canola oil enough to use for sautéing. 
1small bottle of bagoong

Boil meat till tender n put aside. Sauté onion, garlic, tomatoes then add meat till brown. Add all ingredients and simmer till done ... Enjoy with steamed rice and other steamed vegetables..
