Pork Menudo-Most Delicious Filipino Stew

Pork Menudo Overview

Menudo is a typical Filipino stew cooked with pork and sliced liver in a tomato sauce with carrots and potatoes. It has neither tripe nor red chile sauce, unlike the Mexican meal of the same name.

Menudo, similar to Sinigang, is a popular Filipino cuisine that can be found in both restaurants and street vendors (we call it carinderia). Usually served with rice, however, some people eat it with pandesal, a type of Filipino bread. There are many variations, but the basic premise remains the same: pork in tomato sauce. Green peas, tripe, and green capsicum are all used, but the taste is practically the same.

A hearty pork stew cooked with fresh tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, and garbanzo beans from the Philippines. It’s simple to prepare and tastes great with steamed rice.
