This recipe was given to me by my wife's aunt Sylvia (after 6 years of begging) and is not as labor intensive as some recipes but the flavor is fantastic.
UPDATE: I recently made this exact recipe using InstaPot pressure cooker. The only modification made was to reduce the initial cook time from 4 to 1 hour under pressure and only one bottle of menudo seasoning. Once I added hominy, I adjusted seasoning with a little more menudo seasoning and salt and cooked under pressure for 20 more minutes.
