The Philippines is country with rich culture, tradition and people. Not only that, one of the things that makes a Philippine vacation special is the variety of mouth-watering foods. There are many unique recipes available in the country like the “dinuguan” or pork blood stew.

This Pork Dinuguan recipe is another variation that we have for the same dish. We love to use pork and pig large intestines for this recipe. Intestines are known as bituka or isaw in the country. This is an ingredient that needs proper handling and care. Preparing the intestines for consumption is a long and tiring process, but it can be rewarding in the end (if you are a fan of it).

The steps below should guide you on how to make your own pork dinuguan regardless of your expertise in cooking.
