Ingredients

    1 lb. pork shoulder, cubed into 1/2" cubes
    1/2 cup onion, chopped fine
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 green pepper, cut into 1/2" strips
    1 can tomato sauce
    1 bay leaf
    1/2 cup chicken stock (homemade or low-sodium)
    1 tbsp soy sauce (use low sodium, if necessary)
    1 medium potato, cubed into 1/2" cubes
    1 can of garbanzo beans, drained
    1/2 cup raisins (optional)

Directions

Heat a 3 quart heavy-bottomed pot over the medium high heat. Sprinkle the pork with 1 tsp of salt and mix well. Brown the pieces of pork in batches, removing and keeping warm until all the pork has been browned.

Reduce heat to medium and add 1 tbsp of oil to the pot. Sauté the onion and garlic until translucent. Deglaze the bottom of the pan with the chicken broth. Add the tomato sauce, pork (and any acclumated juices), soy sauce, bay leaf and green pepper to the pot. Stir well to combine. Turn up the heat to high to bring to a boil and then cover and lower to a simmer. Simmer for 40 minutes.

Remove the cover, add potatoes, drained garbanzos and raisins (if using). Bring back to a boil and then drop heat to medium and simmer for another 20 minutes. Remove bay leaf before serving.

Serve with white rice (traditional) or brown rice for a healthier alternative. Makes 9 1/2 cup servings.

  • Mmmmmm I love Menudo, my mother makes hers a bit differently. She uses peas instead of garbanzo beans and doesn't add raisins. I'm curious to try it with raisins though! Thanks for sharing! - 6/25/13
