How to cook Pork Menudo

The Pork Menudo Recipe is a delectable dish composed of pork stew combined with liver cubes, garbanzos or chickpeas, potatoes, tomato sauce and many spices.

The good thing with Pork Menudo is you can skip some of the ingredients, if you don’t like the taste of the liver you may not add it depending on your choice. You may also use Chicken meat instead of pork meat or you can mix them both depending on your taste. It takes time to prepare the ingredients because of the slicing and chopping but cooking this dish is very easy because all you have to do is put everything in. Though, Pork Menudo sounds like a Spanish food it is absolutely a classic Filipino Recipe.

    The recipe does sound delicious, except I’d probably omit the pork liver. Organ meats are generally sold in my area, and the cost of shipping isn’t worth the expense. I think I would add bits of sausage instead.

    […] Recipe is an authentic Filipino Ilocano dish.  Igado is like Menudo , ilocano style.  Different barrios cook their Igado in many ways. Some nearly looks like a menudo […]
