Dinuguan sa Kamias
Dinuguan sa Kamias. Some of our readers may remember our Dinuguan sa Sampalok post, I would say that was one of the best Dinuguan Recipe that we had. The sourness was not acidic , it was definitely sour but you could taste the difference , it was mellow but still sour as we wanted.
Today I would like to share another dinuguan version, Dinuguan sa Kamias. Just reading the word kamias make every sourly fruit loving Pinoy droll. The idea came about after having a lot of extra kamias from my previous Binagoongan Kamias at Baboy.
Before I give you the recipe you may as well check out my other dinuguan post in the archives. Just click on the link list below to see the recipes.
Okey making our Dinuguan sa Kamia is of course basically the same with our Dinuguan sa Sampalok , more or less it should be jus similar except that the souring fruit is kamias lot of kamias instead of sampalok.
Here is the recipe of today’s version of dinuguan, the Dinuguan sa Kamias.

1/2 kilo pork intestine
2-3 litters fresh pork blood
