Bopis (Diced Pork Lungs and Heart)

Bopis is originally a spicy Spanish dish adapted by Filipinos. Its main ingredients include pork lungs and heart sauteed in herbs and spices. Cooking time is around fifteen minutes so it can be categorized as a thirty-minute dish, including prep time. Here’s how:


  • 1/2 kilo ground/minced/cubed pork lungs and heart
  • 1 whole garlic head, crushed and minced
  • 1 whole onion head, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, minced
  • pepper
  • chili slices (adjust according to taste)
  • atsuete /annato seed oil
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • salt
  • *you can substitute salt for patis/fish sauce


Heat oil in a pan and saute garlic until you can smell its aroma then mix in the onions. After two minutes, mix the pork heart and lungs. Cook for about five minutes or just until the meat turns brown. Season with salt, pepper, and chili slices. Pour in the annatto seed oil and bell pepper. Stir and let cook for around ten more minutes, adjusting the taste as you go along. Serve with plain steamed rice.
