How to cook Pork Menudo

Prep time: 60-90 minutes

Ingredients :

2 lbs of pork butt or loin cut n cubes or strips is prefered
1/2 lb of pork liver cut in cubes
1 tbsp. of minced garlic
1medium onion chopped
2 tomatoes sliced
1 small red bell peppers cut in strips                                                                                   1small green pepper cut in strips
2 potatoes sliced in small cubes
1 carrot sliced in small cubes
1 tbsp. of raisins
1/2 c. of sweet peas
1/2 c. garbanzos (chick peas), optional
1/4 c. of tomato paste
1 bay leaf
2 tbsp. of olive oil 1 tsp soy sauce
1/4 c. of vegetable oil (if you’re going to fry the potatoes; see notes below)
meat broth or water
salt and pepper to taste

For the marinate: 3 tbsp lemon juice and 2 tbsp soy sauce


- Marinate pork for at least 15-30 minutes in lemon/calamansi and soy sauce mixture.

- In a casserole, heat the olive oil. Over medium-high heat, brown pork pieces until the meat is no longer pink. Set aside on the casserole. Add the garlic and chopped onions, tomatoes until cooked well.

- Add the tomato paste, 1 tbsp soy sauce, bay leaf and 1 c. of water. Season with salt and pepper.

- Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer for an hour or until pork is tender. Check the amount of liquid once in a while. Add more broth or water, if necessary, about half a cup at a time. When the pork is tender, increase the heat to medium-low and add the liver cubes. Cook for about 2 minutes. Add cooked potato and carrot cubes, sweet peas and diced bell pepper. Adjust the seasonings. Stir to distribute ingredients. Serve over rice.


- Adding a sweet dill pickle is an option. You can substitute this in place of raisins.

- Eliminating liver is fine if you don't eat liver. Can use liver spread also.

- Frying potato and carrots are optional.
