Goto is a type of rice porridge with innards of either pig or cow. This Special Goto Recipe uses both ox tripe and pig intestine. Goto has been famous in the Philippines because it is affordable and can easily satisfy hunger. This has also been a breakfast favorite and a rainy day comfort food.
The most important thing that you should remember before cooking this special goto is to clean the ox tripe and pig intestine thoroughly. If you can wash it several times until the pungent smell is gone, that is the best. Also, we will need to boil them for a couple of hours or more until the texture is soft enough for us to chew – the softer, the better.
When making any type of rice porridge, some people think that they need to add more rice. Adding more rice will result in adding more water later on. This will affect the volume of the other ingredients too. Make sure that you start with just 1 cup of rice (good for 3 to 4 persons) and work your way to more if you think that this is not enough. The ratio of the ingredients below is perfect for 3 to 4 persons.
Goto is best served with egg, green onions, toasted garlic, and chicharon. I also love to have it with a little fish sauce and calamansi (or lemon).
