"Filipino food is a fusion of different flavours which evolves through various influences like Spanish, American, Chinese and other Asian countries. As we adapted and concocted these dishes it has created diverse flavours that are uniquely Filipino seasoned and spiced by our rich culture".

Pork Dinuguan sa Gata

Dinuguan is an authentic Filipino recipe.It is a stew made from pig's blood and meat.
Those not so familiar with the recipe would find this food not so appealing because of the pig's blood, but this recipe is really delicious. And if you're a filipino, Dinuguan is always paired with Puto!
There are variations in preparing for this dish, but since i'm a bicolana, I am fond of using coconut milk in most of my dishes, and it made this "Dinuguan" recipe more delicious.
Tara kain na!

  • In a pan, saute onions and garlic in oil over medium heat. Add pork meat, saute for about 3 minutes.
  • Cover and let meat cook for about 10 minutes, or until water is almost dry.
  • Then add the coconut milk, vinegar, ground pepper, bay leaf. Cover and let boil for about 5 minutes.
  • Slowly stir in the pork blood. Continuously stir while you pour in the blood to avoid curdling.

  • Enjoy!
