Filipino menudo is a stew of pork meat and liver cubes with garbansos (chickpeas), potatoes and tomato sauce. This is one of the many Filipino recipes that will always be a part of Filipino cooking culture.
Sauté the minced garlic in lard until lightly brown.
Add in the chopped onions.
After about two minutes, add the chopped tomatoes and sauté for about 3 minutes.
Add the pork cubes, seasonings and tomato sauce.
Cover tightly and simmer until the pork is half-cooked.
Add the diced potatoes and liver. Cook until the potatoes are done.
If the mixture is drying out, add water.
The chickpeas should have been cooked beforehand. If you’re using canned chickpeas, there’s no need to further cook them. Add the chickpeas and the bell peppers to the menudo stew a few minutes before serving.
