Low carb Sisig – Filipino style pork dish
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.
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic, sliced
salt and pepper to taste
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.
