Pork Adobo

Pork Adobo is a simple dish popular among Filipino's. It is basically pork cooked or braised in soy sauce, vinegar and garlic. Adobo can  also be made of chicken (Chicken Adobo), beef, vegetables (Adobong Kangkong) and even sea food. It can also be cooked in different ways or variations. I made it easier by combining all the ingredients at once.

  • 1 kilo (2.2 lbs) pork belly cut into 2 inches pieces
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp white wine (optional)
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce (optional)
  • 3 dried bay leaves 
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper or 1 tbsp peppercorns
  • pinch of salt
  • chopped parsley for garnishing/topping
  • Combine all the ingredients in a cooking pot.Mix well.
  • Cook.Cover and bring to a boil without stirring to avoid the sour taste of vinegar  .
  • Lower the fire and continue cooking for 2-3 hours or until the sauce thickens and oil comes out from the pork fat.
  • Stir well. Add more salt and pepper to taste if needed.
  • Serve hot with  jasmine rice, hard boiled egg and tomato salad.
