A Classic Filipino Sisig Recipe


Sisig is a well-liked starter (pulutan) which became a main course that in fact started out from around the cooking capital of the Philippines : Pampanga. This unique recipe for Sisig was created by Lucia Cunanan or generally famed as Aling Lucing (she actually is referred to as the sisig queen). In the beginning, sisig is comprised of chopped pig’s face skin (nose as well) and certainly ears and also a generous quantities of chicken liver. A huge selection of sisig distinctions can be obtained in these days ranging from the very first pigs face (maskara) ingredient into a lot more nutritious seafood assortment which can include squid, tuna, milk fish (bangus), as well as mussels.

Most of the time there are a lot of eating establishments and in fact eateries (carinderia) which typically provide this glorious meal.
