  • 2 pounds minced pork lungs
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 4 Thai chili peppers, stemmed and chopped


  • In a bowl, combine minced pork lung (or bopis mix), vinegar, and salt. Marinate for about 10  minutes.
  • In a wide skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onions and garlic and cook until softened.
  • Add fish sauce.
  • Add minced pork lungs and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 20 to 30 minutes or until liquid is mostly absorbed and meat begins to sizzle.
  • Add carrots, bell peppers, and chili peppers. Continue to cook for about 2 to 3 minutes or until vegetables are tender-crisp.


Pork lungs are not available in the U.S. markets due to stringent regulatory laws. You can substitute pork hearts and finely chop with a knife or pulse in a food processor.
