Cast your vote for Delicious & Simple Pork Adobo Recipe

Pork Adobo is a Filipino dish made up of Pork belly that is marinated & stewed in a combination of soy sauce, vinegar, garlic and seasoned with salt, peppercorn and bay leaves. A favorite dish throughout the Phillipine's & the Pacific rim including Hawaii.Adobo comes in many different regional variation's depending on where you're from.

The base ingredients for adobo are;

• Vinegar

• Soy Sauce

• Water

• Garlic

• Peppercorn

• Salt

To this marinade you can then choose to add any meat such as pork, chicken or fish.You can then decide to stew or roast your meat.

For this recipe we will be using pork for our meat and use a combination of frying & stewing.

*Note This recipe will serve 2-4 people however you can prepare a larger pot of pork adobo using this recipe just double the amount of ingredients per every 2lbs of meat that you use.

For best results when using pork you will want to use the pork belly cut or you can use pork butt, pork shoulder or a combination of all three pork cuts. Keep in mind that the leaner the meat the more dry it will be. Proper fat ratio and content in the pork plays a key role in how your adobo will ultimately come out.

Always use a good quality dark soy sauce. The Datu Puti brand is most authentic and can be found in any asian market or asian Isle of your favorite market. Aloha soy sauce works good too. Just be sure not to use soy sauces that are cooked with wine such as Kikkoman. The wine taste will give the adobo a completely different taste that were not aiming for in this recipe. Yellow or Apple cider vinegar works better as it is not as strong as white vinegar making a more pleasant vinegar taste.

I hope you enjoy this delicious Pork Adobo dish as much as I enjoy sharing this recipe. Don't forget to "Comment" , "Like" and "Share" this recipe.
