This is NOT my recipe, but I got it from this website It's one of the best I've tried, very true to the "real thing".

This was perfect!! I love adobo and this was the closest I have come to duplicating the first time I tried it. I cut back on the salt. I also loved that the amount of soy sauce is up to you because a lot of recipes are much to salty. Good one to try.
