This recipe will teach you how to cook adobo, a great addition to the repertoire of international dishes you can easily cook.
Things You'll Need
- 1 lb. pork, cut in cubes
- 1 lb. cut into pieces
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1/4 cup onion, diced
- 2 tbsp. canola oil
- 1-2 dried bay leaves
- 2 cups water
- 1/2 cup vinegar
- 1 tsp. black pepper
- 1 cup soy sauce
Heat oil in a saucepan on medium high heat. Saute garlic and onion until caramelized.
Add pork, and brown for a few minutes before adding the chicken. As the chicken cooks and turns white, add soy sauce, water, and vinegar. Simmer for 30 minutes or until the meat becomes tender and is fully cooked. Add bay leaves.
Add a dash of salt and pepper to achieve desired taste, but keep in mind that the recipe has soy sauce, which is generally already salty.
Serve on top of hot rice.
Tips & Warnings
- Some people like to sear their meat to a golden brown color. After simmering (step 3), use a slotted spoon to transfer pork and chicken to another saucepan and brown them for a few minutes. When done, pour the sauce from the first saucepan over them.
- If you must add salt, it should be added after the pork is cooked for a more tender meat.
