Pork Dinuguan sa Gata

Pork Dinuguan with Gata

Dinuguan is a classic Filipino recipe. It is a pork stewed from pig’s blood. Those who are not aware of the recipe may have an unappealing impression because of the ingredient use to stew the pork. This recipe is hardcore but it is really delicious.

For most Filipinos, we love it with Puto on the side! It’s my favorite afternoon snack delight!

Nowadays, there are a number of versions in preparing Dinuguan recipe and bicolanos version is the use of coconut milk to make it creamy flavourful. If you want the authentic Dinuguan with Puto Calasiao, try this recipe. And our must try delicious Crispy Pork Dinuguan version. Happy cooking and enjoy this recipe.
