Menudo

Menudo is another type of Filipino recipe that is compose of a stew of pork meat and liver cubes with potatoes, carrots and tomato sauce. But we can also use Chicken meat instead of pork meat and add chickpeas (garbansos) in your vegetable mixture.

This recipe reminds me of my husband story of how he learned to cook this Filipino menudo. He told us that he loves to cook this recipe during his college days. He learned the recipe by watching one of the Filipino cooking show. He wrote the ingredients, run to the nearby market, then cook immediately for dinner before he forgets. He said that the first try taste good and then added variations in his next cooking.

Ingredients :

  • 2 lb. pork belly, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 lb. pork liver, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • juice of 1/2 lemon (or juice of 4 calamansi)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cups tomato sauce

  • 1 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup potatoes, diced
  • 1 cup carrots, diced
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
