1. In a bowl, mix the beef, pork, egg, onion, garlic, carrot, pickle relish, sausage, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, liquid seasoning, and cheese until well blended. Form every 3/4 cup of meat mixture into logs.
2. Press the middle part of the meat mixture to create a well in the center then add 1 slice of chorizo and 2 slices of egg. Once filled with chorizo and eggs, seal the meat mixture to cover the filling and re-shape the logs.
3. In a pan, mix together DEL MONTE Filipino Style Tomato Sauce, water, soy sauce, pepper, and bay leaf. Mix well.
4. Arrange the murcon in the pan. Turn on the heat then simmer in the covered pan until the murcon logs are cooked.

Chef's Tip

When forming and reshaping the logs, be sure to seal in the eggs and chorizo and pack the meat well so that the logs retain their shape during cooking
