50 ml soy sauce
20 ml lemon juice

20-25 pieces pita bread (roll)
1. De-hair and clean well meat. Boil to “bite-friendly” tenderness but not to the point of disintegration.

3. In a suitable frying pan, heat palm oil. Add in crushed garlic, toss until brown, dump the ½ chopped onion-mix and tumble until translucent. Remove or strain cooked solids. Set aside this “flavored oil”.
4. In a bowl, in this sequence and while tossing constantly, mix cut meat, chicken liver paste, vinegar, soy sauce, salt, black and red peppers. Mix well. In the same frying pan with “flavored oil” pour in meat mixture and lightly heat tumbling well to avoid sticking to bottom of pan.
5. Remove pan from heat and lastly, add in lemon juice and the other ½ chopped onion. Tumble. Heat very lightly pita bread until little brown spots appear in still live charcoal or at direct fire from gas stove.
6. Lay flat unto plate and pour in 50 grams “Sisig”. Roll as shown in picture.
