Pork Adobo Recipe

The other thing I cooked for my birthday was pork adobo. I know it’s a simple ordinary Filipino dish, but just weeks ago, I was able cook great adobo in Batanes, and I wanted to replicate it for my family. Besides, it’s not everyday we eat adobo in the house.

Pork Adobo

My sister taught me this recipe years ago, and I’m so glad she did.

Simple Pork Adobo Recipe

1 kilo pork (I use liempo or pork belly for my adobo)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoon sugar
10 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 bay leaves
freshly ground black pepper

  • Combine all ingredients in a casserole pan and marinate for at least 30 minutes. Make sure that all the meat is covered with the marinade.
  • Put the pan over high heat until it boils.
  • Lower the heat and let it gently simmer until pork is tender, stirring occasionally.
  • If you prefer your adobo dry, remove excess sauce when the meat is already tender, and continue cooking the adobo until it dries up.
  • What I love about this adobo recipe, aside that it’s so easy to prepare and cook, is that the meat is thoroughly seasoned. Plus, the remaining oil and sauce makes for good adobo rice 😉

    To make adobo rice, scoop out the meat from the pan after cooking. Take off the excess oil, leaving enough to coat the rice. Also, make sure that you leave enough of the adobo sauce. Put in the left over rice, and toss until every grain is covered in adobo goodness.
