Naimas A Tinuno Idtoy Ilocos

Tinuno served with fresh Ilocos tomatoes

A basic Ilocano dish and one of the most-loved —  Tinuno, or charcoal grilled pork. Ilocos rock salt is rubbed in before grilling.

Tinuno becomes Insarabasab when suka, crushed ginger bits and lasona slices are mixed in. Insarabasab becomes Dinakdakan when utek and mascara are added. See the difference?

Ilocanos abroad will agree with me that pork tastes way different here — more flavorful, sweet and juicy.
