Beef Dinuguan

Dinuguan is a Filipino savory stew of meat and/or offal (typically lungs, kidneys, intestines, ears, heart and snout) simmered in a rich, spicy dark gravy of pig blood, garlic, chili (most often siling mahaba), and vinegar The term dinuguan comes from the Filipino word dugo meaning "blood". Beef dinuguan is same procedure to pork dinuguan. 

Here is my own version of dinuguan. 

Wash the meat or kidneys, intestines, ears,  and heart very well and boiled it with lemon grass to get rid of the odor for 30 minutes more or less. Wash again and slice it into thin or your desire sizes. Heat the frying pan and pour it with 3 tbspn cooking oil. Sauté garlic until brown add onion, ginger, red bell pepper, sliced meat and lemon grass for 20 minutes more or less with occasional stirring. Add vinegar, soy sauce, msg, black pepper powder, chile pepper, salt to taste and mixed it well.  Put the fresh strained blood with continue stirring until it becomes sticky. And served while it is hot.
