Lasang Pinoy Sundays - Red

Lasang Pinoy, Sunday Edition - RED

At first look you might wonder "that's orange not red...." True, as I have many times mentioned I am no good with Filipino foods, but when I started this foodblog I tried learning some of the more favorite pinoy dishes. As you can see the meat did not take on a red color, perhaps for lack of asuete or because I did not use tomato sauce only pure tomatoes. Iam posting this for lack of red...
Menudo is one of the many that I tried and yes, shameful as it may, this is my first time cooking it...=D


1 small head of garlic (minced)
1 medium size onion (diced)
1/2 kilo pork meat (chunked)
1/4 kilo pork liver (cubed)
5 pieces chorizo Bilbao (cut, optional)
4 potatoes (peeled, cut in small cubes, fried)
2 carrots (peeled, cut, partly fried)
1 green and 1 red bell pepper (diced)
1 cup green peas
1/4 cup raisins (optional)
2 teaspoons of patis (fish sauce)
1 cup pork or chicken stock
3 tablespoons oil
3 tomatoes (diced)

How to:

1. In a pan or wok, heat oil. Saute garlic and onion.

2. Add pork meat, chorizo de Bilbao, and tomatoes. Let the tomato's juice ooze out by covering then bring to a boil.

3. Add patis and the stock.

4. Simmer for 20 minutes or until the pork is tender.

5. Add the liver, green peas, potatoes, carrot, bell pepper and raisins. Boil for another 2 minutes. Liver is easily cooked and gets tough when cooked longer so it better to put them at when the dish is almost done.

6. Season with salt and pepper according to taste.

7. Serve with rice.
