This pork dinuguan dish is mainly comprised of pork stew of blood and meat. Other uses internal organs of the pig so your choice. Some even uses chicken or beef as a substitute to pork meat, but if you ask me I prefer using pork belly or pork shoulder.

Pork Dinuguan is one of my favorite Filipino pork dishes specially when made with pork belly or shoulder as it has to have pork fat or at least 30% to make it more delicious! I also added a tablespoon of tamarind sinigang mix powder and it sure adds to the taste.
