Are you looking for a fabulous way to cook pork and string beans? Well, try this pork and string beans adobo recipe.
I remember this elementary friend name Jovewin (I’m not sure if I spelled her name correctly). She loves food. Her mother used to pack her rice meals and every day is extravagant. I also love to watch her eat because she’s savoring every moment of her spoonful bites. I came to the point that when I arrive home, I request my mother to cook what my classmate ate during our break time.
One time, my mother also prepared a rice meal for me. Jovewin tagged along and asked me to exchange some of our viands. Mine was corned beef and hers was pork and string beans adobo. The moment I put the vegetables in my mouth, my world stopped. That was the best string beans adobo I had.
