Menudo: The Classic Filipino Dish

Saucy meaty and with vegetables, the Menudo is a staple dish in a Filipino kitchen. Another thing about the menudo is that it’s also a standard during festivities as it can be cooked in large portions and can easily be served to house guests.

Adding a Spanish flare with its rich tomato based sauce, the menudo is an easy to make recipe that you can prepare ahead for an on-the-go day while still be a good-to-eat meal the following day.
