Menudo is a common Filipino stew that is traditionally made with pork, pork liver, vegetables, and tomato sauce. It is often served at family gatherings such as fiestas and birthdays.

Menudo can be prepared with other types of meat, as well, and in this recipe I used chicken gizzards. Part of the digestive tract of a chicken, the gizzard is considered to be a delicacy in many parts of Asia.
