Pigar pigar, is a very popular street food in Dagupan, Philippines made out really thin slices of beef and liver quickly deep-fried and served with fresh slices of onions.



  • 500g beef, sliced thinly
  • 150g beef liver, sliced thinly
  • 1 large onions, sliced
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • oil


  1. In a bowl, marinate beef slices and liver for at least an hour in soy sauce, salt and black pepper.
  2. Now using a wok, add lots of oil enough for deep-frying the beef. Heat up the oil until it is near its smoking point, then add the beef slices and liver slices.
  3. Once the sides of each beef slices are crispy (the sides will burn first) remove beef by using a slotted spoon and place it on a metal sieve (to allow dripping of oil) then quickly add the sliced onions and mix, using the remaining heat to cook the onions.
