Lola's Christmas Special - Morcon

December 23, 2011


Each and Every Christmas season, My Grandma, Lola Bebang, prepares and cooks her specialty, the Morcon. Morcon is a Festive Dish only served during Christmas, Fiestas and very special occasions due to its complexity and ingredients. It is made up of long and lean slices of beef rolled with celery, scrambled eggs, liver, sausages, Chorizo de Bilbao, Chinese Chorizo and Pork Fat then tied and cooked for a long period of time.

This has always been a specialty of my Grandma and I cannot argue with it, nor be biased, because I have tasted so many Morcons but my Grandma's THE BEST! 2 Days To Go! Merry Christmas Everyone!
