Dinuguan is a stew of pork, usually pork offal simmered in pig’s blood, vinegar, and spices. Blood in Filipino is “dugo” hence the name “dinuguan“. If you are not into internal organs, dinuguan can be served without using any offal, using only choice cuts of pork.This dinuguan recipe consists mainly of meat as I am not that into eating pork innards.

Dinuguan is usually served with rice or Filipino rice cake called puto. You can find this dish being served in food stalls or carinderias. Taste and textures varies but the best dinuguan I have tasted does not contain innards, as I think it can contribute to the bitter taste if not prepared well, with thick sauce.
