Thanks to Century Tuna for considering my entry to win in their facebook contest months prior, several more cans of their Hot and Spicy Tuna and Corned Tuna got added to our stockpile of canned goods for the impending end of the world a month plus from now. You know, just in case there will be hoarding. Though hoarding prior to Christmas and New Year seems to be the norm. Anyways, it’s better to be prepared.
But it looks like, not all the cans will survive until doomsday. Just last night, looking for a midnight snack, I opened a can of Hot and Spicy Tuna and made Tuna Bistek Tagalog. Well, Bistek or Beef Steak Tagalog is beef cooked in soy sauce, calamansi and onions. This recipe borrows the flavors of that dish, sans the beef, of course. I think I got this from a recipe booklet that came with some packages of Lucky Me Pancit Canton which are instant noodles available locally. Supposed to be toppings for the noodles, I had this with leftover rice.
1 can Century Tuna Hot and Spicy or Century Tuna in Vegetable Oil. Separate oil from tuna. Do not discard.
1 medium onion, sliced
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 piece calamansi
1. In a frying pan, saute onions in the oil from the Century Tuna.
2. Add Century Tuna when the rings begin to separate.
3. Season with oyster sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Remove from heat and transfer to bowl.
4. Squeeze juice from Calamansi onto tuna.
As usual I tweaked the seasoning to suit my taste and you should too.
