Hi Good day to everyone! This is Pablo of MyFilipinoRecipes.com We are now going to cook Pork Adobo (Adobong Baboy) This is our ingredients together with their measurements These are the photos Let’s start Mix all the ingredients except the water In a big bowl, let’s put our pork liempo (pork belly) We’ll also add soy sauce and of course, we’ll also add vinegar, We’ll also add condiments like garlic peppercorn and bay leaves Let’s stir well our ingredients, then let’s marinate it for at least 30 minutes to overnight. By the way, so we’ll understand why we did this, “Adobo” came from a Spanish word “Adobar” It’s a word or verb which means “to marinate” Marinate for what? We marinate our meat in order to preseve it. Our preserving ingredients are: vinegar and the saltiness of the soy sauce According to some researchers, the term Adobo is not a name of a dish instead it is a way or method to preserve a food After we marinade, let’s start cooking. Let’s put our mixture in our cooking pan. We will also add water to balance the saltiness and sourness of what we are cooking. Let’s cover it and boil over medium heat. and then reduce to lower heat. We are doing this because the slow and long process of boiling will tenderize our pork meat And, in the middle of our cooking, we’ll stir or flip the meat to cook the other side of it. Let’s cover it and just let it boil until the sauce thickens of our Adobo dish. Here we are, we arrived at a saucy consistency Stir and simmer for another 3 minutes and that will be okay. Our Pork Adobo is cooked and can be served as is. If you want to fry and have sauce in your Adobo, remove the meat and fry in another pan then put it back to our cooking pan with sauce. But, what we are going to do is to just le it boil. Until the sauce evaporates and the meat renders it own fat (oil). That is the traditonal way of cooking adobo in the past which is very oily (to best preserve). Also, it is better if the meat of Adobo is being fried in its own fat. If you noticed, the method of sauteing is in the last part of our cooking. not before boiling. this is because if you saute or sear the meat before boiling, it will be harder for the meat to absorb the highly seasoned marinate. What we did in our cooking, is we let it boil with meat before we saute for the meat to retain the seasoning that it absobed from our marinade.
