Let’s cook Adobo!


I’ve never cooked Adobo in my whole life. I think it comes with the many recipes I see and have no idea which one to follow. I think it’s about time I learned how to cook adobo.

Care to share your recipes? One friend puts hard-boiled eggs in it. Another puts peanut butter (or was that in kare-kare?). Another puts liver spread. I’d love to learn how YOU do it. Do indulge an Adobo amateur please!

    have you tried sassylawyer’s pork adobo? grabe, it’s too die for. nung una akala ko exagg lang siya when she said sinful yung adobo recipe niya then when i tried it, my hubby loved it so much, he refuses to eat adobo pag hindi ganun yung luto.

    try it. it’s really easy to make and REALLY good!

    hi toni! i sautee garlic, onion (lots of garlic is preferred!). Then i add the meat (either pork or chicken) until brown. Add salt and pepper to taste. (i use ground pepper, my dad uses whole, mum uses semi-ground. we all tinker in the kitchen!) Then i add soy sauce and vinegar (just enough per your standards) and water, immersing the meat. I let it be (under low fire to boil and simmer until the liquid is reduced.) If pork, I leave it to oil (Im not really health-conscious. hehehe); if chicken, I leave it until I have enough liquid for “sabaw sa kanin”. Sabi ng parents ko, masarap naman daw ang adobo ko! =)

    My mum’s recipe: she puts everything in, then leaves it. Masarap din. =)

    I hope i was able to help. =)

    Well, I don’t know how to cook so I can’t help you here but I do eat my adobo, whether pork or chicken, with ripe mangoes! 😛 I do the same too when I eat beef steak tagalog. It was something I got used to while growing up. My mom used it as an alternative for vegetables (as I hated them).

    Oh, by the way, I know my grandma’s cook mixes peanut butter on her Inihaw na Liempo marinade.

    I heard Clarice mention the adobo recipe on sassylawer’s web site but there are many recipes for adobo to die for. Can you point me in the right direction?

    I just chuck pork or chicken or both in a pot with vinegar and soy sauce plus dry bay leaves. Pepper to taste .Simmer till tender, and there you have it!You can always add potato and boiled eggs. If it’s so tangy add some sugar to balance the acidity, This is how my Mom makes adobo.
