Filipino Recipe - Chicken Pork Adobo

In the Philippines, Adobo is a style of cooking that uses vinegar, soy sauce and garlic.

Adobo is popularly regarded as the Filipino national dish. It is prepared by marinating pieces of pork or chicken or a mixture of both in vinegar, crushed garlic, black peppercorns and soy sauce. The mixture is simply simmered until meat is tender and pan-fried to get the desirable crisped edges.

There are many different variations of how to cook here are two ways in which I cook Adobo. Happy Cooking !!!

This looks masarap.

My lovely wife is from the Philippines, and this old farm boy from southern Illinois had to learn to eat a lot of strange food that I had never dreamed existed. Some of it I don't even want to think about. :)

I am not really into cooking and I only survive serving 3 main dishes if I have to host any event: baked chicken, roast beef, and grilled ribs--all speedy 1-shot stop at the oven--then grudgingly throw in vegetable lumpia in the mix.

Adobo is one thing I eat when served but could never get the right mix with vinegar and soy sauce. I don't seem to see the soy sauce in yours though. I don't really try to sweat it out with more than 2-3 simple steps.
