Dinuguan Recipe

Dinuguan – Chocolate Pork

Dinuguan recipe is one of the staple recipes of the Philippines. It combines the different flavor and profile combination. Dinuguan merries the wonderful sour taste of blood, vinegar, and pork into an world of awesome flavors.

Dinuguan uses different textures from the ear and meat of the pork will give you an interesting bite after each one. Wait, did I say ear? Yes I did, the ear of the pork gives a crunchy and sometimes chewy texture along with some parts of it with fatty cartiliage. Some people might not be ready for this, but I assure you that this will be worth it if this is your first time trying it.
The preparation of the ingredients is the most time consuming, but once everything is prepared then cooking it all together is just a couple of minutes. Also getting the ingredients might be a challenge, but if you have a carneceria or an Asian store then they should have the ingredients to enjoy this classic Filipino dish.

  2. Put the ear and pork in a seperate pot each and cover with vineger. Add salt and pepper. Boil the ear for about 15 to 20 minutes until it is a little bit soft and pork butt about 10 minutes. Be careful boling with vinegar, it will overflow and foam so either don't put a cover on it or keep a close eye on it. Once it is finished, turn it off and put it aside.
  3. Start with a medium to high pan with 1/2 tablespoon of oil. I usually use olive oil but you can use whichever you have.
  4. Saute the onions and when it is cooked for a little bit add the garlic
  5. Once the garlic is a little bit cooked, add the ear then stir the ingredients around. Add the pork after that.
  6. Once everything is incorporated, add the blood. The blood will turn from red to black, this is where the chocolate name comes from.
  7. Add 1 cup of vinegar and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
  8. Time to enjoy. Kain na tayo. (Let's eat)
