pork adobo

pork adobo

Adobo is Spanish meaning to season or marinade. The Philippines was under the Spanish rule for more than 300 years; it isn't surprising that some of the dishes Filipinos enjoy today were influenced by the Spaniards.

When Spanish colonizers took administration of the Philippines in the late 1500's, they found an indigenous cooking process involving stewing with vinegar. They referred to this as Adobo. Dishes prepared in this manner eventually known to be by this name.

This dish is commonly packed for mountaineers and travelers. Its relatively long shelf life is due to vinegar, which inhibits the growth of bacteria.

ingredients

pork
liver - optional
soy sauce
vinegar
bay leaves
peppercorn
salt
garlic
onion

Cut pork and liver into mouthful size and marinade with soy sauce,vinegar, peppercorn. Set aside at least an hour for flavors to infuse.

Saute onion, garlic and bay leaves. Scooped pork and liver out of marinade sauce and add to the sauteed garlic and onion. Leave to simmer until meat is half cooked. Pour the set aside marinade and seasoned with salt if needed or add water if it proved salty to taste. Let it simmer until meat is tender and the sauce blended well with the meat.

Serve hot with steaming white rice on side.
