Simple Pork Adobo Recipe

Adobo is a Filipino national dish that is very simple to make. There are several ways Filipinos cook their adobo. There's the dry adobo, the wet (saucy) one that's heavy on the soy sauce and the brown saucy one which I'd like to call the carinderia-type adobo.

I have been craving for adobo for weeks now and unfortunately, I couldn't find the carinderia-type in the restaurants close to where I live. So, to satisfy my craving, I decided to experiment.

Below is the recipe for the one I made:

Homemade Pork Adobo

400 grams pork
1 cup water
3/4 cup vinegar
3 tbsps soy sauce
4 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
4 bay leaves
1/2 tsp black peppercorns

Add all ingredients except meat into a pot. Bring to a boil. Add meat, cover and simmer until meat is cooked and tender.

It's as easy as that! This recipe is good for 2-3 people and is best served with rice.

Let me know what you think!
