Monghe: a Rizal-region classic made with minced pork, eggs, cheese, powdered milk, Spam, and seasonings. Steamed, cooled, sliced, and pan-fried!



Units Scale


To Pan Fry

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • oil


  • water, for steaming


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all Monghe ingredients together. Mix well until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
  2. Grease a piece of aluminium foil with a little bit of oil. Spread a layer of the meat mixture on the foil, leaving about an inch of space on each side.
  3. Roll the foil tightly to form a log, tucking in the edges as you go. Twist the ends to seal the log.
  4. Place the log in a steamer and steam for 45 minutes.
  5. Once done, remove the log from the steamer and let it cool down to room temperature.
  6. Once cooled, remove the log from the foil and slice into 1/2 inch thick pieces.
  7. Dip each slice in beaten eggs to coat.
  8. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Fry the slices until golden brown on both sides.
  9. Serve with your preferred dipping sauce and enjoy!


You can adjust the seasoning and the amount of Spam according to your preference. Also, you can use a different type of cheese or add other ingredients like chopped carrots or bell peppers to make it even more flavourful.
