Why I Love This Recipe

Adobo is a popular dish in Philippine cuisine. It is prepared using vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, peppercorns, and bay leaves, to create a marinade. A signature of the cooking method is that after the chicken or pork is simmered to perfection in the sauce, it’s usually browned in oil before serving

This is my mom's recipes and it's one of my favorite dishes growing up.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 ½ lb. chicken or pork cubes
1 tbsp. oyster sauce
1 ½ tbsp. sugar
1/3 cup vinegar
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. salt
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 small bay leaves
1 tsp. peppercorn
½ cup water
2 tbsp. cooking oil


Combine all ingredients except cooking oil in a pot and let stand for 30 minutes

Simmer covered for 1 hour or until meat is tender. Drain and reserve sauce

Heat cooking oil in skillet. Brown meat on all sides. Transfer to a serving dish

Pour off all remaining oil from skillet. Add reserved sauce and cook for a minute or two scraping all browned bits sticking to pan. Pour sauce over meat and serve

Variation: This can be done with a combination of chicken and pork
