Asian Style Chitterlings


5 lb bucket of pre cleaned chitterlings
1 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbs hot chili paste
10 bay leaves
cold water to cover
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic chopped
kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
hot sauce for serving
2 tbs canola oil

This is a southern favorite. Chitterlings can be found in grocery stores already pre cleaned. However we  recommend cleaning them again before cooking. Many southern families have their chitterlings recipes passed down from generation to generation. This recipe is a classic example of how the slaves and disenfranchised underclass used the parts of the pigs that the rich threw away.


  • Add chitterlings to a sink full of cold water and rinse thoroughly in several changes of water.
  • Place the cleaned chitterlings in a large sauce pan and cover with water.
  • Add the cider vinegar and bay leaves.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 3 hours.
  • Drain the chitterlings and let cool slightly.
  • Add canola oil to a hot pan and add the onions garlic and green pepper.
  • Saute for about 4 minutes until onions are clear.
  • Add the chitterlings along with the soy sauce and chili paste and saute for another 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Serve.
  • Note; Chitterlings can also be deep fried in 350 degree hot oil for a crispy treat.

    I prefer to clean my own because I have found out that when you purchaser them already clean YOU have nothing not even the smell that is a truediction for our black heritage

    • Well many folks object to the smell. But whatever makes you happy. We like to clean them in the back yard using a garden hose, which really cleans them well.
