Adobong Sitaw Recipe

| On 20, Apr 2012

My version of dried Adobong Sitaw

If you’re going to ask me, what is my favorite vegetable? I can say it’s sitaw or string beans. I don’t know why, but I will patiently and manually pick them in Pinakbet, sinigang, ginataang gulay and other viand having these fancy little fellows.

Obviously, when you use string beans as a main ingredient for a viand, that’ll be heaven for me.

One of the ways to cook string beans as the main ingredient was Adobo. But, unlike others, I want my Adobong sitaw well done and dry. I also want it with a little pork.

Here are the ingredients:

  • 3 bundles of string beans – cut into 2 1/2  to 3 inches and bottom removed.
  • 1/4 kilo pork – chopped into very small pieces
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1 medium onion – chopped
  • 1 piece laurel leaf
  • 1 spoon sugar
  • Ground pepper


  1. 1. Saute garlic and onion.
  2. 2. Add meat and let it simmer.
  3. 3. Add the soy sauce, vinegar and water. Let it boil for 10 minutes.
  4. 4. Add the laurel leaf, pepper and sugar. Let boil 2 minutes.
  5. 5. When the some of the liquid evaporates, add the string beans and let it boil until it dries out.
  6. 7. Serve and enjoy.

You can also add hard boiled egg, potato or fried fish make it more delectable and delicious. Me, I love eating it with steaming hot rice using my bare hand while foot up on my chair.
