    cali_love's Note:

    Yes, you can pretty much "adobo" anything. Here is an adapted recipe I found somewhere online that I tweaked a bit here and there. [The original recipe contained MSG as one of the ingredients.] I don't know if this is "authentic" per se, because all cooks have their own preferences, but it does follow the basic recipe. Hope you enjoy!
