Menudo (pork casserole)

menudo……………One of the popular dishes in the Philippines especially if you go to provinces celebrating their fiesta. I think almost every house know how to cook this dish. As you can see on my picture, you can eat “mountain of rice” in a serving of my menudo. Now I can say I already complete the “tomato base Philippine casserole”. For recap, I already posted Kalderetang baka(beef), Beef Mechado, and Apritadang Manok (chicken). They almost comes with the same ingredients just have differences on the meat. …………………Did you know that tomato base casserole are very healthy viands. Tomato for instance is very good in providing lycopene sources. Lycopene is also believed to play a role in the prevention of heart disease because it can prevent free radical damage to the LDL-cholesterol in your bloodstream. Lycopene health benefits extend to the prevention and/or treatment of other health conditions as well, including age-related macular degeneration, cataracts and exercise-induced asthma……..

  3. A new Finnish study suggests that high blood levels of lycopene, unlike those of other antioxidants, may be associated with a significantly reduced risk of stroke. Vegetables, especially tomatoes, are a significant source of lycopene.`
