Another version of Sisig, this time its a healthier version of vegetables. We used banana heart as the main ingredients instead of using pork.
And because Filipinos are so fond of Sisig but not everyone likes to eat pork. Different versions of sisig was invented. Some of these are Chicken Sisig, Tofu Sisig, Beef Sisig and Fish Sisig to name a few. And ofcourse the vegetable version would be Banana heart Sisig. You gotta try this version, its yummy!
Banana Heart Sisig (Puso ng Saging)
1 medium size banana blossom (puso ng saging)-cleaned and remove the hard outer part 1 Large onion, minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons calamansi or lemon juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon mayonaise ( optional)
2 pcs red chili pepper (garnish)
1. Prepare the banana blossom and chopped it. In a pot, boil it until soft. Drain from water and let it cool. Chopped it like any sisig (very small or almost ground). Make sure to squeeze out excess water until dry.
2. In a pan, saute garlic and onion until fragrant. Then toss in the chopped banana blossom and mix well.
3. Season with soy sauce and lemon juice. Let it simmer for seven minutes. Adjust heat to medium fire and occasionally stirring to prevent toasting.
4. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss it well to incorporate your seasoning. Make a small hole in the center of the sauteed banana blossoms, then crack an egg. Turn off the heat after few seconds, allow the egg to cook on remaining heat.
If you want it a little creamy, add mayonaise once heat is turned off (to avoid turning the mayonaise into oil if heat is turned on) and mix well.
Serve and enjoy!
Note: You may add leftover pork and minced it to add variety to your sisig.
