What is sisig?
“Sisig” is a Filipino term that means “to snack on something sour.” It originated in the 1970’s through an ethnic group called Kapampangans.
The dish mainly consists of boiled pig’s head and ears, then chopped up and fried to a crisp with vinegar, soy sauce, salt, pepper, onions, and “calamansi” (or lemon). It is a very popular dish throughout every region in the Philippines as well as various places across the globe.
The method of cooking sisig varies from one nation to the other, depending on the recipe that was passed down by its ancestors.
However, due to the fact that I am married to a vegetarian but still wanted to introduce something unique to the family menu instead of serving the ‘ol salads and veggie burgers, I decided to substitute pork with mushrooms and tofu instead, hence the title “Mushroom Tofu Sisig” 🙂
1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl (except for the butter and tofu)
2. Melt butter in a saucepan
3. Sautee mushroom mixture. Simmer until juices have evaporated
4. Add in the tofu and simmer for another 5-10 minutes
5. Serve hot on top of rice and garnish with the kruskits
