  • ¼ cup calamansi juice
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • pepper
  • 2 kg beef kalitiran sliced into ¾ inch thick whole sheets
  • 1 can sausage cut into strips
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs sliced lengthwise into quarters
  • 1 carrot sliced into ¼ inch thick long strips
  • 2 strips pork fat ¼ inch thick each
  • 2 strips of cheese ¼ inch thick each
  • All-purpose flour
  • Cooking oil
  • 4 cups broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Parsley and bell pepper optional


  • Mix together marinade ingredients (calamansi juice, soy sauce and pepper).
  • Place the beef kalitiran on a flat dish and pour in marinade.Set aside for one hour.
  • Remove the marinated beef and lay on a flat, clean boarder tray.
  • On one end of each beef arrange the following: strips of sausages, egg, carrot, pork fat and cheese, distributing fillings evenly.
  • Starting from the end where the fillings are, roll the beef sheets carefully, making sure that all the fillings are intact.
  • Roll the sheets of beef completely until it reaches the other end. Truss the rolls using any kitchen twine by using a metal truss and some string to use for twining.
  • Spread flour on a large sheet pan or on a work table that has been cleaned and dried. Roll the morcon over the flour.
  • Heat cooking oil in a frying pan. Saute the morcon in oil until it becomes brown on all sides. Transfer the morcon to a big casserole.
  • Add broth (or stock) and season with salt and pepper. Cover the pan and allow to simmer over low heat until the beef becomes tender (about 2 hours).
  • When the morcon has cooled down a little, slice it into half an inch slices and serve on a platter with the sauce it was cooked in.
  • You can add a garnish of peppers and parsley. Serve hot.
