Chicken Pork Adobo, the most popular Filipino dish
The most popular dish that we Filipinos used to cook and eat was the Adobo. When I’m not in the mood to cook, this is the first dish that will come into my mind. This is also very easy to do as this is just putting all the ingredients together and let it boil. But, when I’m in the mood, and thought of cooking this, I do it very special.
Just like any other sauce dish, I want my adobo with little but wild and thick sauce. This is also one of my specialty and I will teach you my chicken and pork adobo dish with lots of spices.
Here are the ingredients:
- 1/2 kilo chicken, chopped in small piecs
- 1/2 pork, chopped
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup vinegar
- 1 cup water
- 2 spoon sugar
- 1 piece laurel leaves
- 1 spoon finely chopped basil leaves
- 1 medium onions, chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 spoon butter
- pepper and seasonings
- In a pan add the chicken, pork, soy sauce, vinegar, water, onion, garlic and sugar. Put into boil for about 30 minutes in a high fire. Wait for some of the water to evaporate.
- Add the basil leaves and laurel leaves. Mix well.
- Add the butter, pepper and seasonings. Mix well.
- Wait for the sauce to thicken.
- Serve with steaming rice and enjoy.
What do I like about adobo is that it will not spoil easily and as days go by the meat will soon absorb all the liquid making it very tasty and I just loved that. I hate adobo with lots of soup, I want it thick, but with explosive flavors.
I sometimes add hard boiled egg, potato and 3 spoon of coconut milk. I once also paired it with pasta and oh my! It’s very delicious.
