    Engrossed's Note:

    This is from "The Philippine Cookbook". It's a great tasting recipe. My favorite. I think the recipes that use coconut milk have Indonesian influence due to their proximity. This recipe can also be made with pork or chicken.

      This recipe was great, but the only thing I would do differently is strain the whole black pepper and bay leaves before adding the remainding sauce to the final step. It was annoying, having to bite into these things during the meal. Other than that, great recipe. Thanks for sharing.

      This is so good! Full of strong wonderful flavors. I've also made your chicken adobo recipe and both versions are wonderful. I served this with a recipe entry from RSC 10, that I will reveal later! Thanks for posting!

      This meal was wonderful; I have been searching for a recipe since my husband returned from Afghanistan. I did cut the pepper in 1/2 & only let it sit for 1 hour; not the suggested two. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
