Menudo is a Spanish-influenced dish that is popular in Filipino cuisine. Traditional menudo is commonly eaten for lunch or dinner and consists of cubes of pork simmered in tomato sauce with vegetables . This recipe uses ground pork instead, which is a practical variation and an easy way of making menudo.

Step 1 Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onion, and sauté until the onion begins to soften, about 2 minutes.
Step 2 Add the ground pork and cook, stirring regularly, for 5 minutes or until the meat is lightly browned. Stir in the fish sauce.
Step 3 Add the tomato sauce and water. Stir, cover and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Step 4 Add the carrots, potato and bell pepper, and cook for 10 minutes. Add the green peas and raisins, and cook for another 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with steamed rice.
