Here's how I cooked it:

Mix together marinade ingredients (calamansi juice, soy sauce and pepper). Place the beef kalitiran on a flat dish and pour in marinade. Set aside for one hour but much preferably overnight.

Remove the marinated beef and lay on a flat, clean board or tray. On one end of each beef arrange the following: liver, strips of sausages, egg, bacon bits and cheese, distributing fillings evenly.

Starting from the end where the fillings are, roll the beef sheets carefully, making sure that all the fillings are intact. Roll the sheets of beef completely until it reaches the other end. Use tying stings to secure the rolled morcon

Spread flour on a large dry container. Roll the morcon over the flour.

Heat cooking oil in a frying pan. Saute the morcon in oil until it becomes brown on all sides.

Transfer the morcon to a big casserole. Place the beef rolls and put some water, the remaining ground liver, grated cheese, chopped onions, bay leaves, ground black pepper, salt and 1 L. water.

Simmer the morcon over low heat until tender. After that, remove the morcon from the sauce and let it cool down for awhile.

When the morcon has cooled down a little, slice it into half an inch slices and serve on a platter with the sauce it was cooked in.
