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