Pork Guizo

Pork Stew with Liver and Chorizo

Recipe by :  Ariel Jasa,  Mandaluyong City, Philippines

Pork Guizo is stewed pork with liver and chorizo,  just like menudo, except that it is all meat.

I first learned about this dish when my aunt from Tarlac cooked it for me.  

It is like a meat-lover's menudo, my kids love it because they would normally set aside the vegetables in the menudo and eat just the meat.

My aunt marinated the meat in soy sauce and calamansi juice, then sauteed in garlic and onion and added the tomato sauce.

She cooked it low and slow until the meat was fork tender and the sauce thickened, before adding the chorizo and pork liver.
