I - Igado

Sorry for the late update, we had no Internet connection yesterday, and since I promised I will complete this round of ABC Wednesday, so even if this is late, I would still post this.

My post for "I" would be the Igado, a Filipino dish that is native to the Ilocanos (Northwest part of the country). It was cooked like the Menudo, although there were a lot of variations to this dish.

When I came to live with my Aunt Julie in La Union in 1999, I learned how she cooked the dish - using strips of potatoes and carrots (slightly smaller cuts than the French Fries), and instead of using vinegar, she would use calamansi juice. When brother and I went there last year, she cooked Igado again, although instead of putting potatoes and carrots, she just added raisins.

From what I know of, authentic Igado would include pig's internals - kidneys, heart, pancreas (though not much as this is bitter), and liver... but of course some people don't eat internals, so people can also use pure pork for this dish.

Not my favorite Ilocano dish, but I find this one delicious. However, with my high cholesterol, I don't think I can eat this dish ever again.

Looks amazingly delicious!
BTW, you're not THAT late. As long as you beat the deadline, 6 days after the initial posting, you're golden.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
