Crispy Dinuguan is a dish from Kanin Club made with a combination of crispy pork (probably lechon kawali and dinuguan.



Crispy Pork

  • 1 kg pork belly, (1 big piece, do not slice)
  • 1 whole garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp peppercorns
  • 4 pcs bay leaves
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 can lemonade soda (7-Up or Sprite)
  • sea salt
  • water
  • oil for deep frying

Dinuguan Sauce

  • Crispy Pork
  • 1½ cups pigs’ blood
  • 3 cups pork stock
  • 6 green finger chillies
  • 1 whole garlic, minced
  • ½ thumb sized ginger, minced
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small packet sinigang mix
  • 3 tbsp white vinegar
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper



Crispy Pork

  1. Rub sea salt generously on pork belly then cover it tightly with a cling wrap and store in the refrigerator for at least a day.
  2. Rinse pork in running water making sure all salt has been cleared from the meat.
  3. Place pork in a pressure cooker together with the soy sauce, garlic, peppercorns, laurel leaves and lemonade soda. Now pour enough water just to cover the entire meat.
  4. Pressure cook for 20 to 30 minutes (Depending on the thickness of pork belly), your timing should start when the whistle starts to make sound.
  5. Once the pork is tender remove it from the pressure cooker and pat it dry with a paper towel.
  6. Now once the surface of the pork is dried place it in a covered container and refrigerate it for at least 12 hours or until it is cold.
  7. Prepare a wok filled with oil and heat it up, once hot place the pork carefully while cold into the hot oil, skin side down, be really careful as it will splatter.
  8. Deep fry the pork until golden brown, this won’t take really long and remember you just want to make the outside crisp; the inner part is already cooked.
  9. Once cooked, slice into cubes.

Dinuguan Sauce

  1. In a pot heat oil used in cooking the pork, add garlic, onion and ginger and cook until onions turn soft.
  2. Add the chillies, sinigang mix, vinegar and pork stock, bring to a boil then simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Add pork blood then, slowly simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  5. Add the crispy pork into the dinuguan sauce, mix it well.
  6. Place crispy dinuguan into serving bowls then top it with chicharon
