Southen Boil and fried Pork Chitterlings

Updated on April 30, 2013

Pork Chitterlings

I grew up in the south where eating anything were essential to families who grew up in poverty. Chitterlings are one of Southern people favorite foods on holidays, Christmas, Thanksgiving and new year eve. So many people don't like chitterlings because of the aroma and the way they looks.. Cleaning chitterlings are time consuming a chitterling has to be soaked in cold water, each chitterling has to be washed throughout and examined, making sure they are completely clean. Some of the fat of the chitterlings should be peel off but not all. After cleaned put in a pot of cold water and bring to a boil, adding salt ,black pepper, onions, garlic and red pepper flakes. After a few hours the pork chitterling are ready to eat with vinegar and hot sauces. Another way to cook chitterlings is to fry them in oil. Batter your chitterling in a egg mixture, flour, season salt black pepper and a drop of lemon before dropping into a deep fryer. Chitterlings are a favorite of all southern people.
