Paleo Longsilog

This has been one of the recipes I have been meaning to make for the longest time.  Finally the stars have aligned and I had all the ingredients to make this Paleo Longsilog.  First of all lets answer this question first.

What is Silog?

Well it’s a breakfast dish consisting of 3 main components:

  1. A Protein in this case Longganisa
  2. Sinangag  – Garlic Fried Rice
  3. Itlog – Egg

Let’s breakdown Long-si-log shall we.

Long is short for Longganisa | Si is short for Sinagag | log is short for itlog

To put it simply a Silog is a term of endearment to what Filipinos eat for breakfast.  The first part is the type of protein you are eating.  Then the day old rice cooked with garlic and a crispy fried egg to top it off.  Because after all it’s breakfast.

How to Make This Paleo Longsilog

Now I am going to walk you through on how to make all the components of this meal.  You will be using both the oven and the stove top at the same time, so be prepared with some multi-tasking.

  1. First thing is to put the cauliflower rice in the oven.  Yes we are roasting it in a shallow pan.  I find that it doesn’t sweat as much and you get some nice browning on the cauliflower.  We are going to leave that in the oven for 20 minutes while we make the Longganisa.
  2. Make the Longganisa crumbles.  I like to brown the pork first in olive oil and about 6 cloves of garlic.  Yes that much.  Don’t skimp!  Once it’s all brown I add in the seasonings.
    • Coconut Aminos
    • Coconut Vinegar
    • Just Date Syrup
    • Paprika
    • Garlic Powder
    • Black Pepper
  3. Leave the Longganisa in the pot and check on the cauliflower.  I like it in the oven for at least 30 minutes.  While that is still in the oven make some wilted greens.
  4. You can take your pick here.  I like spinach as it cooks fast.  I just do a quick saute with some olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  It should be done in 5 minutes.
  5. So you will have time to cut up some fresh tomatoes into wedges and dice some chives.
  6. Take the cauliflower out of the oven.
  7. Now at the very end fry up some eggs in olive oil for each person.
  8. Serve everything either family style or plate each serving.  Your choice!
  9. Oh you can also serve some extra Coconut Vinegar on the side 🙂

  • 1 Pound Ground Pork
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 6 Cloves Garlic Minced
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Aminos
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Vinegar
  • 1/2 Cup Just Date Syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon Paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon Black Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Garlic Powder

Wilted Greens

  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • Sat and Pepper

Fried Egg

  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

Side Dishes

  • 2 Tomatoes cut into wedges
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Chives

Instructions

Cauliflower Garlic Rice

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Place the cauliflower rice, olive oil, garlic powder in a baking tray.  Toss to coat and season the cauliflower and then spread in an even layer.  Bake for 30 minutes.

Longganisa Crumbles

  1. While the cauliflower is in the oven make the logganisa crumbles.  In a large pot heat up the olive oil on medium heat and add the pork.  Cook for 5 minutes and then add in the garlic.  Cook for a further 10 minutes until nice and brown.

  2. Add in the coconut aminos, vinegar, date syrup, and other seasonings.  Cook for another 5 minutes to develop flavor.  Taste and adjust the sweet, salty or sour levels to your liking. Leave in the pot until ready to serve.

Wilted Greens

  1. In a separate frying pan heat up the olive oil on medium heat and add in the spinach.  Cook for 5 minutes until wilted, but still green and vibrant.  Season with salt and pepper.  Leave in the pan until ready to serve.

Fried Egg

  1. Check on the cauliflower and turn off oven and leave to the side until ready for serving.

  2. To make the friend egg heat up the oil in a small skillet on medium heat.  Crack an egg into the hot oil and cook for 3-4 minutes just until the egg white is set.  Transfer to a plate and repeat for the other 3 eggs.

To Serve

  1. Place rice, longganisa crumbles, greens, eggs and tomato and chives on the table and serve family style.

Recipe Notes

Note: 

My friend Ginger Dimpasok from Cafe 86 has made a version of this with apple sauce.  If you don't have Date Syrup you can replace it with 1/2 cup of apple sauce instead.

You can also replace the Coconut Vinegar with regular white vinegar or even apple cider vinegar.
