Simple Menudo

This is what I basically call the omit and replace menudo recipe. Our marketing day is scheduled every Wednesdays, so not all ingredients in the pantry have been replenished. Since we still have a left over liver from last week’s menu, I then decided to come up with a menudo recipe with fewer ingredients. Here’s what I believe – as long as the basic ingredients are present on a particular dish, you can still call it a main dish. Say for example, even if spaghetti doesn’t have meat but it has noodles and spaghetti sauce, you can still eat it, because the “main” ingredients are there. As long as there’s seasoning and the basic ingredients, you can get away with it.

Here’s what you need:
¼ kilo pork, sliced
1/8 pork liver, sliced
2 medium tomatoes, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 small sachet of tomato sauce
1 medium sweet potato, cubed
1 medium carrot, cubed
Dash of salt and pepper
¼ cup of soy sauce
3 pieces dried bay leaves (optional)
2 ½ table spoons of vinegar
Canola cooking oil for sautéing
½ tablespoon of white sugar
4 cocktail hotdogs, sliced
1 cup water

What you need to do:

·         On a bowl, combine the soy sauce and vinegar. Marinate the pork and liver for 30 minutes
·         Heat the oil, sauté the garlic and onions.
·         Add the pork. Cook until tender. Add the sliced tomatoes.
·         Pour the water, then the tomato sauce. Add the bay leaves.  Let it cook for 30 minutes until the sauce gets thicker.
·         Dash some salt and pepper, and sugar.
·         Put the hotdogs and liver. Cook for another 7 minutes
·         Serve with love and happy eating!
