From the province of Tuguegarao, Batil Patong simply means all the components are placed on top of the noodles. Enjoy this with spicy vinegar instead of calamansi.

Procedure :

    In a wok, heat cooking oil. Sauté onions until soft, about 2 minutes, then add garlic.

    Next, add the Chinese chorizo and mix until fat is rendered. Add ground beef and stir-fry until meat is cooked, about 5 minutes.

    Add the carrots and cabbage to the meat. Stir-fry for 2 minutes then season with oyster sauce and soy sauce. Add liver strips and toss in bean sprouts. Pour 1 cup of broth and simmer for about 1 minute then turn off heat. Season with ground black pepper. Remove sautéed meats and vegetables to a plate and set aside.

    In the same wok, pour about 1-2 cups of the beef broth. Bring to a boil. Slowly crack one egg and poach in this liquid until set, but leave yolk slightly runny. Remove with a slotted spoon. Repeat until all eggs are cooked.
  • 6
    Pour 4 cups of the remaining broth in the wok and bring to a simmer. In the same simmering broth, add the noodles. Stir as it softens and then cover wok to allow noodles to cook. When cooked, scoop out noodles and transfer to a serving platter.

    Top cooked noodles with sautéed vegetables and poached egg. Serve with extra broth, raw onions, soy sauce, and spicy vinegar on the side.
