Dinuguan/Pork Blood Stew

Is that the "blood thing?" That's hubby's famous line every time he see a dish called dinuguan....lol! I like to eat it once in awhile, but not my typical Filipino fave dish.

According to Wikipedia, Dinuguan is a Filipino savory stew of blood and meat (typically stomach, intestines, ears, and snout) simmered in a rich, spicy gravy of pig blood, garlic, chili, and vinegar. The term dinuguan comes from the Filipino word dugo meaning "blood". It is similar to the Singapore dish pig's organ soup, differing in that it does not contain vegetables and has a characteristically thick gravy. It is frequently considered an unusual or alarming dish to those in Western culture, though it is rather similar to European-style blood sausage, or British black pudding in a saucy stew form. It is perhaps closer in appearance and preparation to the ancient Spartan dish known as black gruel whose primary ingredients were pork, vinegar and blood. Dinuguan is often served with white rice or a Filipino rice cake called puto.

A similar dish is also known among the Bataks of Indonesia, called sangsang. Sangsang is made from pork or dog meat (or more rarely, water buffalo meat), coconut milk and spices (including kaffir lime and bay leaves, coriander, shallot, garlic, chili pepper and Thai pepper, lemongrass, ginger, galangal, turmeric and andaliman.

Dati kumakain ako nang dinuguan pero nung nagaral akong mabuti nang Bible eh hindi na ako kumakain niyon. Ipinagbabawal kasi nang Diyos ang pagkain nang dugo kasi "life is in the blood." Maraming Christian Filipinos eh kumakain pa rin nang dinuguan pero ako hindi na talaga. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
