81 days before Morcon

Yesterday, I was in the mall and holiday decors are up- indeed Pinoy Christmas Season has started. So, I thought I should start sharing Philippine Holiday food recipes--1st is "Morcon" -- A beef roll stuffed with minced meat, sausage , egg and cheese simmered in rich tomato sauce.



1 kilo beef flank steak or sirloin, sliced into 1/4 inch think

4 tblspn Calamansi
1/4 cup Soysauce


1/4 cup Ham, chopped
1/2 cup Sausage, chopped
1/2 kg Pork, ground
3 boiled Egg, chopped
1/4 cup Cheese, grated
1/4 cup Olives, chopped
1 whole Egg, beaten
Salt and Pepper, to taste

Tomato Sauce:

1-2 cups water
1 Onion, minced
3 cloves Garlic, chopped 
1 cup Tomato Sauce
1 tblspn Tomato Paste
1-2 pcs Bay leaves
Salt and Pepper, to taste


Marinate beef in lemon juice, soysauce and pepper for 20 minutes or more. 

In a bowl,combine all filling ingredients. Spread out marinated beef and put in filling. Roll meat and tie with string. 

In a pan, brown meat in hot oil and boil it in tomato sauce mixture. 
Boil until meat is tender. Take out from pan and remove string. 
Slice and pour sauce on top.

Food Notes :

1. Best eaten and served 2-3 days after making them
2. Can be considered as cocido- a spanish influenced stew
