Bopis is a spicy Filipino dish made out of pork lungs and heart sautéed in tomatoes, chilies and onions.

Bopis is a unique Filipino food traditionally prepared from assorted pig parts. These assorted parts are usually the heart, kidneys, lungs, and intestines.

Bopis Filipino Recipe

Bopis Ingredients:

* 1 kg. pork heart
* 1 kg. pork lung
* 1 whole garlic
* 1 large onion
* I red bell pepper
* 3 siling labuyo (hot pepper) (optional)
* 1/2 cup vinegar
* 1 pack amatto (atsuete)
* 1 tsp. black ground pepper
* 2 tsp. cooking oil
* Salt or patis for taste

Bopis Cooking Instructions:

1). Rinse pork heart and lung and boil on low to medium heat for approximately 30 to 45 minutes and until tender (poke the heart with a fork or a knife – if the fork or knife no longer stick inside the meat, the meat is tender).

2). Chop pork heart and lung into cubes

3). Prepare other ingredients:

- Garlic – minced
- Onion – cubed
- Bell pepper – cubed

4). On a wok or frying pan, heat cooking oil and place garlic until brown, onion and cubed pork heart

5). Add salt or patis (fish sauce) to taste

6). Add amatto or atsuete and sautee

7). Pour vinegar and let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes (do not stir)

8). ower heat to low and let boil until vinegar is cooked (you can tell when vinegar is cooked by tasting the sauce. If it tastes like vinegar is still a bit strong, it’s not cooked yet)

9). Add bell pepper and siling labuyo

For more hotter feel, you can add hot pepper. This dish is ideal with hot rice or pulutan.

I don't eat Bopis anymore since the day I went with my husband and friend to buy and slaughter a pig in Hawaii. I saw what's inside the pig's intestine. OMG, I will not elaborate. I still will for as long as "no intestine" ingredients. Same thing with Dinuguan. If I prepare it myself or my relatives, I'll eat it but no pigs intestines. Sorry guys..lose your appetite?
