This recipe may be deemed cliché as you can find it in most Filipino food blogs and may be most Filipinos who can cook has there own recipe/s for tortang talong and tortang talong na may giniling BUT and AND, that is basically the reason why I want to share my own version – to make a contribution to the list of tortang talong recipes
Well, I have to admit, my tortang talong is not something I am proud of because it is usually comes out tasteless. But when it comes to combining tortang talong with pork, well, that is a different story :-). (check our tortang talong recipes: by me and by my husband’s)
Here is my version of TORTANG TALONG na may GINILING NA BABOY
Eggplants – 3 medium size
Eggs, beaten with a dash of salt – 5 medium size
Minced Pork – 200 g.
Red Onions, chopped coarsely – 1 large
Garlic, minced – 3 cloves
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
- Grill the eggplants and peel-off the skin. Do not remove its stalks.
- Place a tablespoon of oil in a pan and add the garlic, sauté until the garlic becomes aromatic. Add in the onions and stir until it wilts.
- Add the minced pork and season with salt and ground black pepper. Pan fry pork until it almost turns brown. Remove the
There are two procedures I do when I cook this. First is the usual that most Filipinos do it, just put the cooked minced meat on top of the eggplant then fry, and the other one is that I mix the eggplant and the meat together. Whichever way, make sure that you can taste the eggplant as well as the meat. For me, I want the taste of the eggplant to be more prominent so when I do the second procedure I make sure that I use more eggplants. I use the above ration.
- Spread the grilled eggplants with its stalk in-tack and soak them in the beaten eggs.
- Place oil in a non-stick frying pan and spread out the eggplant on the pan. Top it with the minced pork and fry.
- Pour a tablespoon of beaten eggs on top of minced pork then turn the eggplant (with the minced pork) to the other side. Fry until golden brown. Do the same with the rest of the ingredients.
1. Cut the grilled eggplants into small pieces.
2. Mix the eggplants, beaten eggs, and minced pork together.
3. Now you can fry this in two batches or brush a small amount oil on a baking dish and bake it (like a frittata)
Serve with catsup or mang tomas sarsa. Me I like it both ways with hot steaming chocolate drink. A great viand for breakfast or dinner. Like it much J
