Sinanglaw Ilocano Recipe. Sinanglaw as Ilocanos in La Union call it, because the mixed internal organs (lungs, intestines and boiled blood) of a cow are boiled by the meat vendors before selling them.
It comes with “papait” which will make the sinanglaw soup tastier and more flavorful. Another famous Ilocano recipe that comes with papait when buying in the public market is the papaitan.
