Puso ng saging burger is something I grew up with in the province. My mother, who needed something cheap to make ends meet learned how to do this puso ng saging recipe. And it was a blessing too, because during those days, you can ask your neighbor for one or two Puso ng Saging and they’d be generous enough to throw in some bananas too.
These puso ng saging recipe is very kid friendly -we thought that were eating the real thing haha! It’s delicious and healthy too! This is my mother’s puso ng saging recipe.
Prep Time: 15 min Cook Time: 13 min
1 Banana blossoms. Make sure to use the Saba variety.
1/2 cup Flour
2 Egg beaten
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp salt
1 whole garlic
1 whole Onion
1 TBSP Oyster Sauce
Remove the outer layer of the banana blossoms -the brownish violet part, until you get to the whitish and softer core. Cut out the stem. Cut it into half and slice very thinly. Soak the shredded banana blossoms in a bowl of cold salted water for about 15 to 20 minutes. (Note: I rub my hands with a bit of oil before I do the next part.) Drain the water and squeeze the banana blossoms to release the sap or “dagta”. Rinse again and squeeze well to remove liquid.
* You can serve this on it’s own with ketchup or Mang Tomas sauce. Or assemble as you would a burger.
* If you want to add meat, add flour and egg, and ¼ kilo of ground pork or beef.
