Bopis…………I would say because of this recipe, this blog was created. I remember when I was cooking this dish 7 months ago, My daughter and I area having a “funny video about cooking”. She get the video camera and started covering a video of me while I am cooking, She was the narrator. Then I acted as A Chef host of her “Cooking Show”. Then, after a week I started posting recipes. Maybe I will show you the video soon as I edited some of the “directors cut” portions. Enough of the video, let’s go back to this recipe. This dish is quite exotic as it is mainly made with pork internal organs such as pork livers, hearts and kidneys and some pork meats mixed with some vegetables like radish and carrots. It is a very common dish in the Philippines as you can find in most street carinderias (small cafe’s) ……………………….. Did you know that the vegetable I used here such as carrots are a very good source of complete nutrition that provide our body the essential enzymes, vitamins and minerals. Also, it is a good source of fiber, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin K, biotin, potassium and thiamine. Carrot has proved its outstanding role in anti-cancer effect. Some research revealed that people with lack of beta-carotene were more likely to have 2 times higher risk of cancer than normal people. It is wiser to eat an appropriate amount of carrot per day to prevent cancer. This is because beta-carotene in the carrot can be easily changed by our body into vitamin A, which is essential for healthy cell growth, strong immune system and protection against muscular degeneration (AMD)……
