Friday last week, I made heart-shaped Bistek Onigiri for my daughter’s lunch. She had a Valentine’s Day party in school that day and I thought it would be fun to make her something “hearty”.
I followed the same procedure I outlined in my Chicken Afritada Onigiri entry, except that I used a cookie cutter this time to mold the rice into heart-shaped goodies. I mixed the sauce from the Bistek Tagalog left over from dinner the night before with some rice and adjusted the seasoning by adding a dash of salt. I sliced the beef into small pieces and used it as filling.
I made extra pieces for hubby and me to enjoy for breakfast. Hearty and filling, I tell you! :)
