  • 2 cups vinegar

    How to cook pork bopis:

    • Wash the pork heat and pork lungs thoroughly in running water. In a large pot, put the pork heart and lungs and pour water just enough to cover the pork innards. Add a cup of vinegar and one tablespoon salt.
    • Bring to a boil and cook for 25 minutes or until tender. Remove from the broth and drain. Cool and dice finely or chop into small cubes. Set aside.
    • Heat oil in a medium size wok or cooking pan, saute garlic and onion until fragrant. Add in the pork heart and lungs and saute for about 3 minutes. Season with chili powder and laurel leaves.
    • Add in the carrot, radish, bell peppers and stir. Pour one cup of vinegar and soup stock then bring to a boil. Cook until the liquid evaporates and almost dry. But you can leave some liquid if you prefer the bopis with sauce.
    • Pour the annato water and season with patis and black pepper. Stir and simmer for a minute more then turn off heat. Serve hot with cooked rice and enjoy!
