"Menudillo Rice"

  • 1/2 kilo of lean ground pork
  • 3/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsps soy sauce
  • 4 tbsps cooking oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely crushed
  • 1 large (50 grams) red onion, finely minced
  • 1 large (50 grams) red ripe tomato, finely minced
  • 1 small (100 grams) carrot, minced
  • 1 medium (130 grams) potato, minced
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 pc (40 grams) red bell pepper, finely minced
  • 1-3/4 water
  • 1 pouch (115 grams) tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsps cheddar cheese, finely minced
  • 2 tbsps green peas
  • steamed rice to serve


In a bowl, combine the first-three ingredients. Mix well. Set aside.

In a wok, put oil. Put over medium-high fire. Saute garlic until golden brown. Follow with onion and tomato. Saute and mash until soft.

Add the carrot and potato. Saute fo 3 minutes. Put marinated pork and red bell pepper. Saute until pork changes color and separates.

Put water, tomato sauce and cheese. Mix. Cover. Bring to boil. Then, decrease to medium-low, gently simmer for 8 minutes. Add the green peas, cook for another 2 minutes.

Serve over hot steamed rice, but personally, I like mine mixed with rice as you can see in the picture.
