The Perfect Adobo

sunny

Hindi ko alam kung bakit pero never talaga kong nag-measure ng ingredients pag nagluluto ako. Panay tantsa lang at according to taste. Kaya ang ending? Everytime magluluto ako, iba ang lasa nya...

Sa bahay namin, isa sa mga "emergency" ulam ang adobo. Syempre nga naman, madaling lutuin at matipid. Kailangan mo lang ng toyo, suka, paminta at bawang, may masarap na ulam ka na.

Kanina, maaga akong gumising para magluto ng pork adobo with sitaw. Kailangan may halong gulay lagi ang ulam namin. Tsaka favorite ni Chocoboy ang sitaw. Hindi nga nya pinapansin ang pork...panay sitaw ang kinakain nya.

Anyway, for some unknown reason, o medyo restless lang ako, naisipan ko na imeasure ang mga ingredients kanina. Para kung gusto nila TSA at Chocoboy ang adobo version of the day, kaya ko ireplicate ng sakto. Hindi naman ako nagsisisi. The recipe is a keeper. I was not able to take pictures though due to time constraints. Ayoko kasing ma-late sa buong month ng July. Next time I cook it though, I will take tons of pictures and update this recipe post.

The Perfect Adobo

1/2 k pork cubes
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
5 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 tsp ground pepper
stringbeans

Wash the pork cubes thoroughly. Place pork cubes in a large frying pan. Add all the ingredients except the soy sauce. Cover the pan.

Bring to a boil. Lower the heat. DO NOT STIR. Wait until the liquid is half its' original amount or until the pork cubes are tender. Add the soy sauce. Continue simmering with the lid on.

Remember to constantly check on the adobo. After 5 minutes, add the stringbeans.

Some like it with a lot of sauce, while others want it drier. TSA and Chocoboy are "sauce people" so I always save the sauce but continue with the cooking process so that the pork will render oil and fry in its own fat.

That's it. Serve with hot rice. A lot of rice.
