Pork dinuguan is a Filipino food made from pork and stewed with pig’s blood. It is savory, silky and creamy and with a hint of sourness.

Dinuguan

Dinuguan comes from the word “dugo” which means blood.

There are various ways dinuguan is being cooked. There are regional variations and style of cooking of the delectable dinuguan.

However, what is common and you would like your dinuguan is for it to be savory, creamy, silky, meaty and a bit sour.

Variations

The classic dinuguan uses pork innards (intestine, liver and other edible internal organs of the pig). If you are using this ingredient in your dinuguan instead of pork meat, it requires you to boil first the innards and chop it finely before starting to follow the steps we use in this recipe.

Other variation of the dinuguan is adding some veggies to it like papaya or sayote cubes. I also love that dinuguan version that has finely chopped banana blossom to it. My father called it sampayna. Although he does not use purslane to it or ulasiman which is usually used in a sampayna. It is so delicious.

Another version is adding kamias to the dinuguan to give its sour flavor.
