Crispy Sisig

I already had posted sisig before and that was one of the traditional recipes where it is primarily made with grilled pork ears and some innards chopped into small pieces but for those who cannot stomach that then how about trying this version of sisig made with pork neck grilled to crispy perfection then chopped and seasoned just like the normal sisig.

This version is even easier to make because all you need to do is to roast the fatty pork neck then season them with the usual sisig condiments, no need to prepare for other offal parts that may be disgusting to others. With this version you can easily serve it to your non Filipino guests and not to worry if they ask what it is made of. I like this version specially the crispy part of it, it is as or if not more addictive than the original sisig and if you are lazy you can even use left over lechon kawali to make this popular pulutan.
