This is the second version of the ground pork dish that my mom makes.  I already posted the Menudillo recipe that I created but this is an easier one.  There’s no tomato sauce added and it is mostly soy sauce-based.  You can adjust the sweetness according to your preference.

Picadillo with Vienna Sausage


1/2 kg of ground pork

1 medium carrot, diced

1  medium potato, diced

1 small onion, minced

3 cloves of garlic, minced

4 cups of water

3 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp brown sugar

salt & pepper to taste

2 tbsp oil

1 can of Libby’s sausage (optional)



Cook ground pork in 2 cups of water until it turns into a light brown color. Set aside. Heat oil in a pan then saute garlic and onion. Add cooked ground pork, stir for about 5 mins.  Add potatoes, carrots, soy sauce, brown sugar and 2 cups of water and let it boil for about 10 mins. Add salt & pepper and adjust sweetness if desired.  Add sliced sausages.  Let it simmer until liquid is reduced to half and the potatoes and carrots are cooked.

Serve with rice.
