Beef Morcon Recipe

I have tasted this “Beef Morcon” several times because mom used to serve it during our town fiesta. She had a friend who is in food business and she occasionally ordered this during fiesta. It is a very good dish especially this holiday. I checked the web for the recipe and I found one from “Filipino Food Recipes.”

Estimated cooking time: 2 to 3 hours.

  • 1 kilo beef, sliced 1/4 inch thick (3 pcs.)
  • 1/4 kilo ground beef liver
  • 200 grams sliced sausages or ham
  • 200 grams pork fat (cut is strips)
  • 3 hard boiled eggs, sliced
  • 100 grams cheddar cheese in strips
  • 100 grams grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 5 bay leaf (laurel)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 meters thread or string (for tying)
Cooking Instructions:

  • Spread and stretch the sliced beef on your working table.
  • Arrange the filling on the sliced beef: sausage strips, cheese strips, sliced eggs, pork fat and some ground liver.
  • Roll the sliced beef with all the filling inside and secure with a thread or string.
  • Repeat the procedure for the two remaining beef slices.
  • On a pot, place the beef rolls and put the water, the remaining ground liver, grated cheese, chopped onions, bay leaves, ground black pepper and salt.
  • Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Simmer for one hour.
  • Add the vinegar and continue to simmer of another hour or until beef is tender.
  • Slice the beef morcon, arrange on a platter and top with the sauce/ gravy poured on top.
Cooking Tips:
  • A spoon or two of flour can be added to water to thicken the sauce.
  • Instead of boiling in a pot, you can use a pressure cooker for faster cooking.
  • Optional: Garnish with olives before serving.
