Sarawakian Local Delights : Small Intestines with Dried Chillies

Image may contain: food



The small intestines of the pig are well loved by the indigenous people of Sarawak.

Although many people do not wish to eat anything from the internal parts of the pig or other animals, the Ibans and other indigenous people of Sarawak can prepare wonderful and memorable dishes using these "spare parts".

The small intestines are tasty when cooked with dried chillies, chilli sauce and lots of lemon grass and onions.

Although they are chewy at times, well seasoned and braised over a longer period of time, they become very delectable.

This dish is available in fast food stalls and "rumah asap" or smoke houses (selling bbq meats), and ethnic food outlets all over Sarawak.

It is also a dish prepared for longhouse festivals especially when home grown pigs are slaughtered.

According to a friend, wild boar intestines are awesome.
