Mom’s Pork Menudo

This is my mom’s simple recipe for Pork Menudo. Pork Menudo is a household favorite in Philippines. It’s best served with steamed rice. You may add other ingredients to make it extra special, such as raisins, chickpeas or chorizo. Enjoy!


1 kilo pork (lean part with little fat) cut into half inch thick cubes
1 cup chopped ripe tomatoes
1/2 kilo pork liver cut into small cubes
1 tablespoon crushed garlic
1 cup potatoes (⅓ inch-diced)
1/2 cup carrots chopped (same size with potatoes or flower design)
1 bell pepper/capsicum chopped
1/2 cup tomato sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper powder
1 tablespoon salt (more according to your preference)
1 big red/white onion diced


1. Saute garlic and onions until medium brown.
2. Put all ingredients except tomato sauce and vegetables (carrots, bell pepper, and potatoes)
3. Keep on stirring for 2 minutes, then add 2 cups water. Stir a little, cover and simmer until half down. Stir occasionally to avoid burning. It is also advised that you use a thick pot to avoid burning the sauce.
4. When the pork is cooked enough, put the potato and the tomato sauce.
5. When the potatoes are already half cooked, chuck in the carrots and bell pepper/capsicum.
6. Add salt or fish sauce for flavour (depends upon your preference)
7. Don’t overcook vegetables. Serve hot and enjoy your meal!
