Question I Bought Some Sisig Spice Mix

I had real Sisig twice and wanted to make some but DH won't go for the "parts is parts" thing. Could someone suggest a general recipe?

I found two definitions for sisig. One for a sweet/sour fruit dish and another for a Filipino dish that involves a pig's head.

Not knowing this dish at all, I googled and found some that appear to follow the traditional ingredients of pig's head parts (ear, jowl, etc) along with pork belly and seasonings. IF someone here isn't familiar with the dish and can provide a TNT recipe, I'd start with that.

If DH needs it to be authentic, does he have a source to ask for a recipe?

Use pork belly, it is an alternative that gets used when people do not want the real thing. If you want to get closer to the real thing add some chicken livers, but I leave those out.

Here is a good solid recipe: http://wilmamorgia.blogspot.com/2011...ing-sisig.html

I have 2 authentic recipes. The DH is the one who can't handle the thought of the pork head parts. I thought maybe pork belly and crispy deep fried minced pork might substitute. Normally I don't like cartilage of any kind but the pork ear was nicely crunchy in both dishes I had.

It's OK to substitute. Use pork belly and whatever else you think will go well and be OK with DH.

I used some pork belly and minced and fried some pork loin. It came out OK just not the same. DH had 2 servings. Thanks for the input!
