  • 2 cups pork blood
  • 3 cups coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 5 pcs bay leaves

  4. Cover and let the meat cook for about 10 minutes, or until the water is almost dry.
  5. Add the coconut milk, vinegar, ground pepper, and bay leaves. Cover and let boil for about 5 minutes.
  6. Slowly stir in the pork blood. Continuously stir while you pour in the blood to avoid curdling.
