10 EASY SAVORY FILIPINO FOODS YOU CAN MAKE FOR CHRISTMAS FEAST LIST:
WHAT IS DINUGUAN RECIPE KAPAMPANGAN?
Before I will talk more, Dinuguan was derived from the root word "dugo" which means blood. This is a kind of Filipino stew so famous and rampant that I have eaten it since I was in a baby. Imagine me eating Dinuguan as my first solid food. It is that rampant and famous meal which is sold in every small and big Philippine restaurants.
Dinuguan uses pork meat, intestines and pig blood as ingredients. It may sound unusual, but Dinuguan is almost similar to Europe's blood sausage.
I cook my Beef Afritada in the Crock Pot so that by the time I come home, I am ready for a delicious meal. I serve this with rice or bread and I am good to go. It is loaded with carrots, potatoes , bell pepper and green peas. In spite of these ingredients, I think it is the green peas that bind all of the ingredients to accentuate its flavor. You can use pork, chicken; but so far, beef is my most favorite for this recipe.
Basic Filipino Lumpia Recipe -There are so many ways in cooking and making lumpia, but I will share with you a lumpia recipe which is pretty much a base recipe for your lumpia. You can customize this recipe according to your liking. You can add, shrimp, add shredded cabbage, spinach and bean sprouts ( my most favorite) or change the meat into ground turkey or ground pork

Pochero is a Filipino type stew which means stew pot. It has with yam, ( sweet potato) Saba ( plantain), tomato sauce and Bok Choy.
