We had menudo for lunch the other day. I prefer menudo over caldereta because I like pork more than beef. My husband love the latter though. Before, he wasn't crazy about the menudo because of the liver in it but lately he is starting to adopt to it and I'm glad that he does because that's one of my favorite ingredients in menudo hehehe.

Got this recipe from

That's cute, he's adapting the spices. However, my GH can't adapt anything strange in his knowledge. Pero, he tried once in awhile.

You know, my dash of spices in life? Huh! someone loves me (secretly) Yay! Tsarap asap-asapin... ngeee
Kidding aside.

Happy Week-end.

I love menudo, I'm crazy about menudo. But the problem is, my kids, like your hubby, hate liver and I can't just imagine making a menudo without liver in it. Sigh, I just cannot make a dish all for myself. When my wife was still here, we used to delight ourselves with menudo but since she's in the States now, I was not able to cook and taste menudo again for more than three years now, waaaah, lol. Thanks for the yummy post. God bless you all always.

This looks REALLY good! I love pork too, but don't care for liver at all. I could probably tolerate it in little chunks mixed in though. LOL

Pareho tayo , mas gusto ko ang pork menudo kesa beef. kasi ang pork may konting fat, si hubby kakain din menudo kapag wala na siyang ibang choice. I also cook beef menudo, preo parang di kasing sarap ng pork. at ayaw dn ni hubby ng atay, hay, ang arte.. yun nga ang fave ko eh.
