 How to cook Pork Menudo Recipe

There is no exact number of how many fiestas (festivals) being celebrated in the Philippines all year round. Almost all of the barrios, municipalities and cities have their own reasons to celebrate fiesta such as promoting their number one local products and most are to celebrate a patron saint and more. Ati-atihan Festival in Kalibo, Aklan; Sinulog Festival in Cebu City; Moriones Festival in Marinduque: Panagbenga (Flower Festival) in Baguio City: Pahiyas in Lucban, Quezon: Obando Fertility Rites in Obando, Bulacan; Masskara Festival in Bacolod City; Higantes in Angono, Rizal and the most popular Flores De Mayo (which is being celebrated nationwide) are just a few good example of the many fiestas in the Philippines.
Fiesta is to celebrate, so that means food and lots of foods. This is a time where we showcase our family tradition recipes that have been passed from generation to generation. From Adobo recipes to Lechon baboy to Pansit bihon and more. But there is one recipe that is always present in the menu whether it is fiesta or just a regular day. It’s Pork Menudo! Its striking color orange (or sometimes red) plus a bunch of ingredients makes this dish the center of attraction and the star of the crowd.
Today, I’m going to teach you how to cook Pork Menudo that would surely become a star for your family, whether there is a fiesta to celebrate or just a simple meal of the day.
So, let’s begin!
INGREDIENTS:
1. 1 kilo pork
2. 1/4 kilo pig’s liver
3. 4 pieces hotdogs, sliced diagonally (optional)
4. 1 cup potatoes, diced
5. 1 cup carrots, diced
6. 1 small can green peas (optional)
7. 1/4 cup raisins (optional)
8. 1 small pack Del Monte tomato sauce (about 1 cup)
9.1/2 cup soy sauce
10. 1 tbsp. fresh calamansi juice
11. 3 cloves garlic, minced
12. 1 small red onion, chopped
13. 1 beef cubes
14. 1 tbsp. brown sugar
15. 1 cup water
16. 2 to 3 pieces dried bay leaves
17. 1/4 cup cooking oil
18. salt and pepper to taste
HOW TO COOK PORK MENUDO:
1. In a large container, combine pork, soy sauce, and calamansi juice. Marinate for at least an hour. Cover it and put inside the fridge.
2. After an hour, get the marinated pork and bring to a room temperature.
3. Heat oil in a pan and fry the potatoes and carrots until become tender. Set aside. Potatoes are a very good source of vitamin B6 and rich in potassium and also a good source of vitamin C and more, while the carrots is packed with vitamin A, some biotin and a good source of vitamin K. (Frying these vegetables give a unique and burn flavor to the menudo).
4. In the same pan, drain some oil then sauté garlic and onion over medium heat.
Add the marinated pork and cook for 5 minutes.
5. Pour in tomato sauce and water and then add the bay leaves. Let boil and simmer for 30 minutes or until pork becomes tender. You may add water occasionally as necessary to avoid the sauce from drying.
6. Add-in the liver and hotdogs. Cook for another 5 minutes. Liver is rich in iron that helps boosts your immune system and is responsible for the monitoring of tissues’  oxygen levels to prevent tissue damage in your body.
7. Put-in fried potatoes and carrots. Add-in sugar, salt and pepper. Stir and cook for 5 minutes.
8. Serve hot. Bon appetit!
TIPS:
1. You can also marinate the pork overnight to better absorb marinade flavors, just make sure to cover it and put inside the fridge.
2. Always use fresh ingredients.
