This is excellent. The only thing I changed was adding more garlic because garlic. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly.

Yes this is the best version of adobo on Zaar. The others are way too salty and always seem to be missing something. But this is just how my mom makes it. Delicious! This should have much more reviews than it has.
