As a child, Edwin's mom told him, "If you want to eat, you should cook it yourself." And that's exactly what he's been doing ever since.

Blood Stew From the Philippines

Dinuguan is a Filipino stew made from pork meat and pork blood. Its name comes from the word dugo, which means blood in Tagalog. It is typically eaten as a main dish, though it can also be eaten as a mid-afternoon snack, and it is traditionally served with rice cakes.

Instructions

  3. Add the pork blood and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring continuously to prevent curdling.

Variations

  • You can substitute cow's blood for pork blood, if you prefer.
  • Try adding vegetables such as bell pepper and tomatoes if desired.
  • Instead of soy sauce, you can use fish sauce or just salt.
  • If you'd like a sweet and savory stew, add 1 to 1.5 tablespoons of sugar.
  • Rather than using water, you can use chicken broth or bouillon cubes.
  • For a thinner stew, add more water.

For this and many other Filipino dishes, soy sauce and vinegar are frequently used. I use Datu Puti brand soy sauce and vinegar because they are made in the Philippines. Add these to you grocery list if you want to make authentic Filipino cuisine. You can find this brand at Asian stores, or you can order it online.
