Sour and Spicy 'Shrooms (Mushroom Sisig)

Sour and Spicy 'Shrooms (Mushroom Sisig)

Sisig (SEE-sig) is traditionally made with chopped pig's face and served on a sizzling hot platter. The mushrooms here mimic the chewy-meaty quality of pork and don't take nearly as long to prepare. You still get all the salty, tangy, and spicy flavors. And no face gets chopped!

  1. Step 1

    Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and white parts of green onions; cook and stir until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in chiles and mushrooms; cook, stirring, until tender and excess liquid evaporates, 5 to 8 minutes. Add soy sauce and calamansi juice; cook, stirring, until reduced to a glaze consistency, 5 to 7 minutes. Taste and add more soy sauce or calamansi juice to reach desired tanginess and saltiness.
  2. Step 2

    Serve hot with a dollop of avocado oil mayonnaise and a sprinkle of the green parts of green onions.
