Sisig is one of the most popular dishes in the Philippines. Although it originated in the Northern province, which is also known as the country’s culinary capital—Pampanga—the dish has become well-known and well-loved all over the country. This is perhaps the most versatile dish you’ll ever find. It can be categorized both as an appetizer and as a main dish. And while it was originally composed of chopped pig’s face (ears and snout included) and chicken liver, you will now find hundreds of variations, from ones composed of chopped pork belly to those with seafood as its main ingredient.
Indeed, there are as many versions of the sisig as there are carinderias and restaurants that sell them. Of course, SLERS isn’t going to be left behind. The local brand that introduced American county-style ham to the country has diversified their business and ventured into the world of quick meals with their SLERS Express Meals restaurant. And because it is a Pinoy favorite, sisig is one of the dishes they offer. As you may have expected, they have their own version of this sumptuous dish.
If you’re anywhere near the Gaisano City Mall, don’t forget to drop by SLERS Express Meals so you can enjoy their delicious Crispy Sizzling Sisig. And if you like it enough (as we’re sure you will) to want to cook it at home so you can enjoy it with family and friends, here are the things you need to prepare:
- 200 grams SLERS sisig
- 1 pack SLERS chicharon (crushed)
- 1 egg
Yes, you read that right. You can now buy a pack of fully-cooked SLERS sisig. It is available at Robinson’s CDO and any SLERS store near you. Now, that makes things a lot easier, doesn’t it? Okay, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s proceed with the cooking…
Get your hot plate out and heat it on your electric stove or gas range. If you don’t have a hot plate and are okay with a “non-sizzling” version of the SLERS crispy sisig, you may skip this part and just prepare a plate on which to serve your sisig.
Now, heat up the SLERS sisig on a skillet. As soon as it is hot enough, transfer it to the hot plate (or the serving plate, as the case may be) and then add your favorite SLERS chicharon. To make the sisig extra special, you may add a whole egg and then mix all the components well. You are now ready to serve your very own crispy sisig!
If you have your own recipe for the all-time favorite sisig, you may use that and then simply add the chicharon and egg to convert the dish into your take on the SLERS crispy sisig. By why go through the hassle when SLERS has made things easy and convenient for us?
The simplicity of their dishes and the ease with which they can be prepared are, in fact, among the main reasons why people—locals and tourists alike—have come to appreciate SLERS Express Meals.
