Pork Menudo with Cheese

In most occasions we mostly seen this in the table because of the yummy taste for a heavy meal and good for pulutan too. I was also a big fan of this recipe even if I ate it over and over again specially with a liver kick on the taste this made me a lot to get more even without a rice.However, there are people don’t want to include liver on the dish because of its gamy taste. But there is a technique how to get rid of the gamy taste making it more pleasurable to eat (In the procedure You'll know how it goes). What I learn is, you can make the dish more delicious by adding cheese to it and for sure kids will love it too.
