Adobo is a pork or chicken recipe, marinated in soy sauce and vinegar, its up to your preference if you are going to marinate it or let the sauce mix simmer with the pork and then fried...there are a lot of ways to cook adobo...but you will sure love this!
- 1⁄2 kg pork (with fat, any portion) or 1⁄2 kg chicken piece (with fat, any portion)
- 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄2 cup native vinegar (if not available any vinegar, will do)
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1⁄8 cup brown sugar
- garlic clove
- laurel leaf
- combine all ingredients in a pan, simmer until tender or the liquid will reduce to half.
- then add cooking oil.
Omit the brown sugar unless you want your adobo to taste like Humba - a different Visayan dish. Also, Adobo bisaya is always marinated and then fried; the meat is not simmered in soy-vinegar sauce. This is what distiguishes Adobo Bisaya from the Tagalog version of Adobo. xoxoxo
