Dinuguan (also called dinardaraan in Ilocano, or pork blood stew in English) is a Filipino savory stew of blood and meat simmered in a rich, spicy gravy of pig blood, garlic, chili and vinegar. The term dinuguan comes from the 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 (the fruit of a native shrub similar to Sichuan pepper)).
It also looks like a panful of highly explosive and volatile diarrhea that was shat out by a dying homeless man. But it tastes good with rice!
Dude!! Henry is eating assplosion again!
What the fuck is assplosion?
Dinuguan is an idea of Lapu-Lapu.more...
He saw Magellan's big muscles, along with the Spaniards' big cannons. Seeing the size of his enemies, Lapu-Lapu wanted to have a potent pre-battle meal to spike up the morale of his warriors.
Lapu-Lapu ordered his top tribe chefs to devise a meal which was dark as death, reminding his warriors of the blood bath which will happen next.
Dinuguan was then invented! Lapu-Lapu's warriors were told that this is a meal made out of the blood of rival warriors, which caused them to behave like a bunch of howling NFL quarterbacks with war paint striped on their cheeks as they ate it.
The rest is history.
Lapu-Lapu brought his most pissed off, biggest, baddest Mactan mothe--uck--s to stomp the sh-- out of the conquistadors'.
The Spaniards fought with their helmets, steel breastplates, swords, shields, muskets, blackpowder and crossbows but they were simply no match for the pure whoopa** which was unleashed by the Island natives who were only armed with G-strings, Krises, Bows, Arrows & Bamboo/wooden spears.
The Spaniards were at loss to the uselessness of their armors, as the natives kept murking them on the legs.
When Lapu-Lapu found Magellan, his first strike on him sent dozens and dozens of cutlasses, spears and scimitars raining upon him as the nearby warriors death showered Magellan to kingdom come.
Today, you can now relive this heroism by eating dinuguan. Bon Appétit! Breakfast of champions!
