Dinakdakan II

We have posted one of my husband’s dinakdakan recipe (see Dinakdakan ), now, I’m posting another one which he cooked sometime in September.  What is special about this dinakdakan recipe is that he added pig’s brain which made this dish more appetizing.

Here’s the recipe.  Caution:  be careful with the cholesterol :D


Pig’s ears  - 2 pieces
Half of a pig’s face
Pig’s brain – 1 pack (less than 100 g.)
Lemon Juice from 2 lemons
Apple cider vinegar – 4 tbsp
Ginger, crushed and chopped – 2 thumb sizes
White onion, finely chopped – 2 medium bulbs
Siling labuyo – as desired
Pickled green Chilis
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cooking Procedure:

1. Clean the pork well and make sure the hairs are thoroughly removed.  Frederickburnt the pig’s hair on the stove.
2. Boil the pork face and ears in a pressure cooker for 7 minutes (start timing from the moment the pressure cooker whistles)
3. Put the pig’s brain in a plastic and put it in a boiling water.  Cook for less than 5 minutes.  Do not over cook. Scoop out and set aside.
4. Slice the pork meat into desired sizes (the smaller, the better)
5. Add the rest of the ingredients.  Mix well. Add more salt and pepper if necessary
I didn’t have to add mayonnaise for this dinakdakan as I usually do.  It’s good as is.
