Chicharon Bituka Recipe

Chicharon Bituka are deep fried pig or cow intestine prepared similar to that of Chicharones  or Pork Cracklings (Pork Rinds). This dish is usually served as an appetizer or “pulutan” and is best when accompanied with beer.  Another popular chicharon intestine  is the Chicharon Bulaklak. 

Chicharon Bituka

Before cooking chicharon bituka, it is important that you clean the intestines with running water for at least 10 minutes. Also, you can boil them more than once to makes sure that they are tender and the odor and other bacteria are removed. When frying,ensure that the boiled intestines are dried-up properly. Frying it with liquid can cause the oil to spatter.

Instead of just having canned tuna mixed with crushed sky flakes (a very easy to prepare pulutan know as dog food) , why don’t you try to make some Chicharon Bituka ? This can be quite time consuming to prepare but this will surely make your barkada and the rest of the drinking buddies happy.
