An authentic pork menudo that’s ideal for parties, family gatherings, and Noche Buena celebrations. The combination of meats provides the dish with real depth, while raisins offer a sweet, little finish to this Filipino staple.

  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 oz yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 ¼ lb pork belly or can also use lean pork (boneless country ribs), cut into small pieces (smaller than bite size)
  • 3 cups pork broth
  • ¼ cup tomato sauce
  • 3 dried bay leaves
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp Knorr® Liquid Seasoning
  • 8 oz pork liver, washed with cold water and diced small (same size as the pork)
  • 12 oz russet potato, peeled and diced small
  • 2 tbsp liver spread
  • 4 oz diced carrots (1 small carrot, peeled and diced small)
  • 1 box raisins (1/2 cup)
  • ground pepper
  • 2 pcs large Filipino hotdogs (can also use any regular hotdogs) 8 oz, sliced in bias, cut 1 inch thick
  • ½ or 4 oz red bell pepper, seeded and diced (same size as potatoes)
  • 2 oz green olives, sliced in half (seeded)
  • 1 cup frozen peas

Begin by preparing a pan with hot oil and adding the potato and carrots. Fry until lightly browned, then remove from the pan, place on a plate lined with paper towels and set aside.


Add the garlic and onions to the pan, followed by the pork kasim and liempo. Fry until light brown in color. Throw in the liver and cook for a further 2 minutes.


Crumble in the Knorr® Pork Broth Cubes and stir to dissolve. Add the tomato sauce, water, sugar, and black pepper, then mix well.


Carefully place the potatoes and carrots back in the pan and continue to cook over low heat until the meat and potatoes are cooked through and the sauce has thickened.


Add raisins and bell peppers and cook for two more minutes. For an authentic pork menudo recipe, serve with plenty of love.
