Ground Pork Menudo

Ground Pork Menudo

This ground pork menudo recipe is called menudong giniling or pork giniling in Tagalog. There is a lot of variations of this recipe. Some quail or chicken eggs in this recipe, but I prefer mine without it. I think I have too much protein in this menu already. Others also add peas, which I do sometimes but most of the time, I don’t.

It’s an easy recipe. The preparation is quick unless you grind your own pork. If you want the soup a little thinner, you can add a little bit of pork broth. It’s usually what I do sometimes especially if I want to eat it with rice. If you don’t like rice, add more potatoes if you wish to.

This menu is so good, I could eat this twice a week.
