Menudo, also known as ginamay, is a traditional stew from the Philippines made with pork and sliced liver in tomato sauce with carrots and potatoes.[1] Unlike the Mexican dish of the same name, it does not use tripe or red chili sauce.[2]


The dish is made with garlic, onions, tomato, pork, liver (pork or beef), diced potato, raisins, diced carrots, green bell peppers, soy sauce, vinegar or calamansi and tomato sauce, and seasoned with salt and pepper.[3]

It is one of the most common offerings in karinderyas (small eateries that offer budget-friendly meals to local residents) and is also commonly served in potlucks or buffets due to the inexpensive ingredients used in the dish.
