Dinuguan or Blood Stew is a dish wherein pig or cow’s blood is cooked with meat and other ingredients. This is considered as an authentic Filipino food and is best eaten with steamed rice buns called “puto”.
Unlike our previous Pork Dinuguan recipe, this version makes use of the pig’s innards. The heart, liver, and intestines are sautéed to reduce the gamy scent then mixed with other ingredients to form a bizarre yet delightful concoction.
This dish might seem unusual or disgusting to those who are not familiar with it. Like other peculiar dishes, it takes an acquired taste to like and enjoy this stew. Once an acquired taste develops, you will never look at this dish the same way again.
