In the Philippines, we hate seeing things go to waste. We’re a country fond of up-cycling, or turning scrap materials into something new and useful, of using every single bit of an animal when cooking. Take for example a Filipino favorite, sisig, which makes use of pig face and ears. Many would balk at the thought of chopping up a pig’s face for food, but ask any Filipino: that’s where the best flavor is! 

Offal recipes, or dishes that make use of animal innards and organs, are very popular in the Philippines. While it may seem very Halloween-y to make, we Filipinos can enjoy offal at any time of year. Whether you’re hosting a Walking Dead binge-party or just in the mood for some guts, here are my recipes for Dinuguan, Bituka, and Goto. Watch the video below!

What should I make next? Leave your ideas in the comments.
