Papaitan Kambing, Pinapaitan Kambing

Pinapaitan Kambing
Papaitan Kambing, Pinapaitan Kambing is a popular goat innards stew of the Ilocanos, it is more exotic compared to the equally popular papaitan baka. See my previous post of papaitan baka. Instead of using bile for the papait, papaitan kambing uses the green enzymes from the goat small intestines or isaw. Of course if you are not keen of using the green enzyme you could use the bile instead.

If you are not in the Philippines, most likely goat innards is not readily available where you are, not unless you order from your favorite butcher or visit the slaughterhouse.

Can you suggest any alternative for bile? To where I am, I can't find any way or place to have access to the bile. Every butcher place I asked, they said it's against FDA.
I am eager to cook this recipe & show this to my Portuguese husband.
I appreciate your response.

you can use balat ng kalamansi instead of bile...ilagay lang ang balat ng kalamansi habang pinakukuluan manga 10 pcs ng kalamansi or higit pa depende sa panlasa mo... :)

*pigain muna kalamansi bago gamitin

Speaking of bile and where you can buy? depends on where you live. If you are living in the U.S. there are some Pilipino stores selling "frozen beef bile", for instance. The online (location: Livonia, Michigan) actually allow to shipped frozen foods. They also have called "bulaklak" a.k.a. pork innards, one of the papaitan ingredients. Actually, I will be there in Livonia next couples days to buy some papaitan ingredients and I will try this recipe too!

I think "papaitan mix" is now available in the US and Canada, packaging is similar to sinigang mix.

I think, the best out of papaitan is to cook it in advance, tapos palamigin sya at ilagay sa refrigirator. Once tumaas na ang mga mantika nya pwede mong alisin ang mga fats. then Heat mo ulit, Hindi maninibago ang lasa at lalong sasarap. Thats how my uncle do it.
