JunMags has been cooking for more than 50 years. As a child and later on as a teen, this was how he prepared Cagayan de Oro’s version of Sampayna or Dinuguan. This, he says, is an old recipe. Instead of prime cut meat, the main ingredient is pig’s small intestine, cut into small pieces.
- 1 lb pork loin cut into cubes
- 1 cup vinegar
- 2 pcs long green pepper
- 1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 medium sized onion chopped finely
- 1 tbsp garlic minced
- 1 tbsp cooking oil
- 1 cup water
- 10 oz pork blood
Sauté the garlic and onion in a pan
Add the pork and sauté for about 5 mins
If you like it to be more tasty, you may add 1 pork or beef cube followed by a cup or two of water.
Simmer until the water is almost gone to tenderize the meat
Add the pork blood and mix well. Let this simmer for 10 minutes
Add the vinegar. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Put the brown sugar in followed by the long green pepper and simmer for 2 minutes
Enjoy your meal!
