I'm a busy Filipino and don't have time to watch my adobo simmer OR I forget to defrost the pork butt. So I just throw everything in a crock pot set at high (even my pork butt frozen!!).
- 2 lbs pork butt
- 5 -6 medium sized potatoes, diced
- 1 1⁄2 cups soy sauce
- 1 1⁄2 cups apple cider vinegar
- 3 cups water
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 tablespoon peppercorn
- 2 small onions, sliced
- 4 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- Combine all ingredients except potatoes into crock pot. Set on high and cook for 4 hours. Add potatoes and cook for an hour more. You can shred the pork in the crock pot. I pull the pork out and cut into chunks and add it back into the adobo.
I love this recipe! I can't believe no one has reviewed it before. Very easy and tasted amazing! I'm not Filipino and have never had pork adobo before so I really don't know how it stands up beside a 'traditional' version. I bought some pork butt on special at our market and since it's not a familiar cut of meat for me, was looking for a way to cook it. Turned out fabulous This is definitely going to be a regular Sunday dinner-type dish at our house. Great comfort food.
