"Adobo is considered the signature dish of the Philippines. Almost all meats, seafood,and vegetables can be cooked using this method. And as in all traditional cooking worldwide, each family has their own way of making it. To the four basics ingredients of vinegar, soy sauce, peppercorns, and dried bay leaves, other components were added to produce unique dishes. This particular recipe combines pork belly and chicken. OMG - sounds divine, doesn't it?"

Step by Step Method

Note: instead of pork belly, you can use spare riblets - have the butcher cut spare ribs in half.

Step 1

Heat oil in a pan. Add the garlic. Cook until the color turns golden brown. Remove the garlic and set aside.

Step 2

Add pork and chicken to the pan. Saute for 5 minutes or until the color turns light brown.

Step 3

Add peppercorns, bay leaves, oyster sauce, soy sauce, and water. Bring to a boil and simmer until the meat is tender.

Step 4

Add the sugar and stir to combine. Add the vinegar, stir, and return to a boil. Simmer until most of the liquid evaporates.

Step 5

Taste and add salt or a bit more soy sauce if necessary. Add the fried garlic, stir, and cook for 2 more minutes.

OMG-this was as divine as promised in the description. Made this up early today so it could be a go to meal later this week, but could not put away without a taste and oh what a delicious taste it was. I did omit the oyster sauce and did not miss it due to all the other rich flavors. You can bet your bottom dollar we’ll be enjoying this again. Thanks for the post.
