Igado with Pineapple and Mushroom

Igado with Pineapple and Mushroom
Igado with Pineapple and Mushroom. I made a level-up version on one of my favorite Ilokano food, the Igado. In addition to the usual ingredients, I added some canned mushroom and canned pineapple to the recipe.  I could not think of what to call or any special name of my tweaked Igado, I simply just called it Igado with Pineapple and Mushroom.

The pineapple and mushroom added extra layer of flavors to the already rich in flavor Igado. I am not writing any Igado write-ups on this Igado with Pineapple and Mushroom post.

I have written a lot of Igado information on my previous Igado post, just click the link below should you want more information on our Igado dish.
