Beef Menudo

Beef Menudo Recipe
Beef Menudo is a dish every Pinoy in the Middle East has come to love. Menudo is of course best with pork but being in a place where pork is not readily available we substitute the pork ingredients with alternative meat. Beef menudo is one of the best sellers of most Pinoy restaurant and eateries here in Abu Dhabi in fact I have tried it my self on several occasions.

It is equally as good however the meat and liver are firmer compared to pork that’s why cooking time have been adjusted to give more time to cook the beef to an acceptable tenderness.

Beef menudo is leaner also how ever if you prefer you could always use beef with more fats. The recipe is almost the same with pork menudo, here is how I cooked it.


1/2 kilo beef, cut into cubes
1/4 kilo beef liver, cut into cubes
6 pcs. beef sausage, cut into cubes
1 large bell pepper, cut into squares
2 medium size potato, cubed
1 medium size carrot, cubed
1 medium size onion, chopped
1/2 head garlic, chopped
1 tsp. peppercorns, crushed
2-3 pcs. bay leaf
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup raisins
1 tsp. sugar
cooking oil
