Chittlings recipe

Chittlings recipe

Chitterlings or pork intestines are a favorite among Southern families. Traditionally, they are prepared during the holiday season, but deep freezing makes them available year round. Be sure to wash any surface and your hands thoroughly with a bleach solution to avoid contamination while handling raw chitterlings. Chitterlings are very good and are allowed, in moderation, under some popular Low Carb Diets. Be certain to pass the vinegar and hot sauce. Enjoy!


4 lbs cleaned pork chitterlings
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp minced garlic

1 medium sized onion chopped
1 medium sized bell pepper chopped
1 tbsp crushed red peppers

2 tbsp chopped jalapeno peppers
2 cups chicken broth
3 cups water


Cut your chitterlings, and place them into a pot.
Add in your bell peppers, onion, crushed red peppers, jalapenos, and garlic.
Now pour in your chicken broth, and water.

Cover the pot, and place the pot on the stove.
Turn the heat to high, and bring it to a boil.
Let boil for 10 minutes, then turn it down to medium.

Let the chitterlings cook over medium heat for 3 1/2 hours or until tender.

Be sure to stir periodically!
