Cooking Menudo a Filipino Style Recipe

Cooking Menudo a Filipino Style Recipe

This Filipino menudo is one of the popular recipes for Filipinos and the tomato sauce is used with potatoes, bell pepper and chickpeas.

Chunks of pork and also liver are best for this kind of recipe in this Cooking Menudo a Filipino Style Recipe. But you can just have pork chunks, anyway.

Most of us Filipinos know how to cook this delicious recipe but I heard that in Mexico, menudo dish is also very popular. I even heard that in the United States, this dish is also served.

Another best cure for hangover is the tomato based soup. This is made with the pig's feet and/or beef stomach (tripe or lining). My friend taught this recipe, then.

My good friend cooks like no other in the world and that is why he taught me. I congratulate myself for almost duplicating his cooking skills.

Menudo dish has reddish in color. This is because of the annatto seeds or the achuete.

The cubes around the dish are the potatoes.
