Low carb Sisig – Filipino style pork dish

  Posted on   by   No comments


Sisig is a popular Filipino dish using many parts of the pig, marinated, grilled and fried. My north Americanized version used pork shoulder. This is a very nice main dish and with the egg a very affordable one.

1-2 lbs pork shoulder.  Sliced into thin steaks for grilling

4 cloves garlic
1 small onion, diced
1 tsp  siracha
1 inch grated ginger
1 tsp pepper
2-3 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs vegetable oil
1 lemon, zested and juiced

Put garlic and onion into a mortar and pestle and grind into a paste.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix.    Pour marinate over the sliced pork and marinate for 4 hours or up to over night.

Grilling / Broiling phase

Grill the marinated pork until nicely charred and cooked through.  I broiled my port on a grate in my oven.  You really what to get a good dark color here.  ~10-13 mins / side on high.  Cool.

Cut the  cooled pork in to small dice ~1/4 inch square.

Frying phase
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic, sliced
1 Lemon
salt and pepper to taste
5 eggs

Fry garlic and onion for a couple minutes to soften.  Add diced pork and fry for 5-8 minutes, you are looking for the fat to render and pork to crisp a little more.   Make 5 holes in the frying pan for the eggs.  Crack an egg in each hole, add a little salt and pepper to each egg.  Cover and let eggs cook through.  Serve, with lemon to squeeze over at the table.  I add more hot sauce (sriracha) at the table as well.
