Pinoy-Style Pork Menudo

Pork Menudo is another Filipino favorite. During fiestas and other home occasions, this is often part of the feast in the table.
Each families or regions would pride their own way of cooking this.Some would include pork liver, sausage (instead of hotdog) chick peas or green peas.  But basically there's pork, potato and tomato sauce.

Here's my simple recipe.

Pinoy-Style Pork Menudo


300g pork tenderloin , cut in small cubes
200g tomato sauce
1 tbsp liver spread (instead of pork liver)
2 pcs hotdogs, cut into rings
1/8 cup raisins
1 big bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup carrots, cubed
2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup meat broth
2 tbsp cooking oil
salt and ground pepper, to taste
dash of dried oregano (optional)

  • Heat oil in pan. Saute onions and garlic. Add the meat. Stir fry and cook until meat turns light brown. 
  • Add hotdogs.
  • Add liver spread, then tomato sauce. Cover and simmer for 3 minutes.
  • Add meat broth, potatoes, carrots, raisins and bell pepper. 
  • Season with salt and ground pepper. Add oregano.
  • Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Serve with rice or bread. Enjoy!
