Have you ever tried Adobo? a filipino dish love by foreigners.

Post by elliebelle2018 » 03 Jun 2018, 23:29

Adobo is the main dish from the Philippines that we are really proud of. most of the foreigners who came acroos the country and tried adobo never forget how it taste. and keep trying to cook it once they come back to their home country.
Do you want to try this Filipino dish that wont just fill your stomach. but will be mouth watering that will be in your cooking list and cook for everyone at home?

heres the recipe

1 ½ lb. pork belly, cubed
1 ½ teaspoons whole peppercorn (pamintang buo)
5 to 6 pieces dried bay leaves (dahon ng laurel)
6 to 8 cloves garlic, crushed
5 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons coconut vinegar
1 ½ cup water or beef broth
3 tablespoons cooking oil
Salt to taste (optional)
1. Heat the oil in a cooking pot.
2. Add the garlic. Cook until it starts to turn light brown.
3. Add the peppercorns and bay leaves. Continue to cook for 20 seconds so that its flavors get infused in the oil.
4. Put the pork belly in the cooking pot. Stir and cook until it turns light brown. Note: check the garlic and make sure that it does not get burnt. Adjust heat if necessary.
5. Pour the soy sauce and beef broth (or water). Let boil. Cover and cook in low heat for 40 minutes or until the pork gets tender. Add more beef broth or water if the liquid starts to dry quickly.
6. Pour-in the vinegar. Let the liquid re-boil. Stir and cook for 8 minutes.
7. Taste your pork adobo and decide to add salt if needed.
8. Transfer to a serving plate. Serve.
9. Share and enjoy!

try it and post it 😊

I've had chicken adobo and it was heavenly. I have major soft spot for pancit and lumpia too.

I love adobo! I'm Filipino too, though I can't quite cook it like my mom can.
