How To Make Dinuguan (Blood Stew)

Pepe's Kitchen Dinuguan

Dinuguan is a stew cooked with pork’s blood, it’s creamy, tangy and morish! Usually paired with steamed rice buns called Puto, not the rude kind but I bet the name is it’s to stick it to the Spanish soldiers in those days. Haha! Though Filipino people are happy pairing it with plain jasmine rice because not many knows how to make Puto or have time to make them. It’s also traditionally cooked with offal but my recipe exclude offal as it’s difficult to find a good butcher in London that will sell offal.
