ok, it's been a while since we had filipino food in this house. so today i decided to make adobo a very popular filipino dish and it's the kids and mr. L's favorite. unfortunantly, in times past it's always been a FAIL...it never comes out like my moms or as the kids would say "it's doesn't taste as good as lola's". today i found a recipe online and thought i would give it a try. well, i have to admit, i thought it was pretty good if i had to say so myself and i was right because the kids had seconds and mr. L even said this tastes just like your moms : ). scored! i found the magic recipe! so if any of you are interested, here's the recipe:
1 pound of pork cut into bite sized cubes
1/2 cup of white vinegar
1 head garlic, finely chopped (i put an extra few cloves)
3 pcs. of bay leaves
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
1 teaspoon peppercorn
how to make it:
with a little oil brown pork in a heavy skillet
ad vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, bay leaves, peppercorn and water.
bring to a boil, simmer for 20 minutes
when the juice is absorbed just add another cup of water.
cover and let simmer until pork becomes tender.
serve over rice.
