Chicken Liver, Bistek Style

Chicken Liver, Bistek Style. The best method of cooking chicken liver is either Adobo or Bistek Tagalog style. For today I want to share my version of Chicken Live,r Bistek Style. There is no special about it just that the liver should be marinated, the marinade is discarded after use, I do not re-use the marinade of my liver Bistek. For the sauce I just add fresh soy sauce and kalamansi. Buy the freshest chicken liver. Cooking is fairly simple, it is basically similar to my other Bistek dishes.

Using fried eggplant as an alternative to the pork in Tokwa’t Baboy is the best option. Fried eggplant is a regular Pinoy vegetable side dish, usually served during breakfast with the Pinoy fried rice. Similar to fried firm tofu the fried eggplant goes very well with vinegar soy sauce dressing or dip.

Making the dish is fairly easy, it is basically similar to all our Tokwa’t… recipes. Just cut any eggplant into large cube and fry until color starts to turn to golden drown.

Adobong Pusit at Baboy, Squid and Pork Adobo

Adobong Pusit at Baboy, Squid and Pork Adobo. I first tasted this adobo squid and pork combination at a specialty restaurant at Resorts World in Manila right across NAI Terminal 3 and Nichols. Sine then, I just could not forget about it, it is a fusion of taste of my two favorite adobo, Adobong Baboy and Adobong Pusit. Cooking Adobong Pusit at Baboy, Squid and Pork Adobo is a bit tricky, cooking time of squid and pork are mile apart. Squid when overcooked tend to become rubbery and in contrast when undercooked the fishiness of a raw squid remains. To get away with a rubbery squid, it has to be slow cooked for a long time, but this cooking method makes the squids meat to be on the dry side and size reduced significantly.

To compensate for the different cooking times the squid was added at the final stages of cooking. It is also advice to use a larger size squid or the cut are larger, the squid shrinks significantly during cooking.

Here is the recipe of my version of Adobong Pusit at Ba…
