In line with keeping our meals healthier, I decided to try and put a new spin on the old menudo recipe.
Normally, we saute the pork and fry the carrots and potatoes separately. This time, what I did was:
In a pot, I put the meat together with minced garlic and onions along with 1 liter of water. I brought it to a boil, waiting until the meat was really tender.
After, I put in the potatoes and carrots; cooked it until the vegetables were half done.
Got one cup of water and dissolved a small can of liver spread. Then added it to the pot. Added the tomato sauce.
I let it simmer for about 5 minutes. Added the peas and the bell peppers. And a dash of dried chili peppers. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Simmered for another minute.
Serve with bread or rice.
It still tasted like the menudo that I'm used to.
If you're asking why it doesn't have any fresh liver. Well, my mom taught me to only add ingredients to a dish that you would eat. Since hubby and I both don't eat internal organs, I decided to forego the liver and used a substitute instead.
I hope that you try it and enjoy eating it.
