Sisig-Inspired Pork Shoulder (Oven or Pressure Cooker)

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Pom Pom

Inspired by Filipino sisig, but this is definitely NOT an authentic dish. Can be cooked in an oven or a pressure cooker. To make the dish less spicy, discard the seeds of the jalapeno peppers.

This was really savoury and tasty, though it wasn't authentic sisig. Mind you, the recipe said that it's not authentic upfront, so I can hardly complain. I didn't have a problem with it being too salty like the other reviewer, but I did use a Filipino soy sauce. It was delicious on a big bowl of rice, and the left overs were tasty in a wrap for lunch the next day.
