 Adobo Recipes (Chicken and Pork Adobo with egg)

 Adobo (Spanish: marinade, sauce, or seasoning) is the immersion of raw food in a stock (or sauce) composed variously of paprika, oregano, salt, garlic, and vinegar to preserve and enhance its flavor.

In Filipino cuisine, adobo refers to a common cooking process indigenous to the Philippines.When the Spanish first explored the Philippines in the late 16th century, they encountered a cooking process that involved stewing with vinegar. The Spanish referred to it as adobo due to its superficial similarity to the Spanish adobo. The Filipino adobo is an entirely separate method of preparing food and is distinct from the Spanish marinade.

Filipino Adobo has so many variants and it differs  from region to region. Also, aside from Chicken and Pork Adobo other ingredients can also be used like squid, beef, lamb, other exotic ingredients (like rabbit, snake, frog and bugs) and some vegetables like sitaw (string beans) and kangkong (water spinach).

Today, I'm going to share you my own version of adobo, although it is the same chicken and pork adobo recipe that you may know, but the way i cook it is not. This is the kind of adobo that my 4 year old son loves so much. For a picky eater like him, to eat a lot is a miracle.

So try it!



INGREDIENTS:

    1/2 kilo pork belly, chopped
    1/2 kilo chicken, cut into serving pieces
    3 pcs. potatoes, sliced
    3 to 4 pieces dried bay leaves
    2 teaspoons whole peppercorn
    1 head garlic, slightly crushed
    1/2 cup white vinegar
    1/2 cup soy sauce
    1 tablespoon oyster sauce
    3 tablespoons brown sugar
    1 cup water
    Salt to taste
    1/2 cup cooking oil
    boiled Eggs
        

      HOW TO COOK ADOBO RECIPES (CHICKEN PORK ADOBO WITH EGG):

      1. Heat oil in a pan.
       

      2. Once the oil becomes hot, fry the garlic and the potatoes. Cook until the color turns golden brown.
       

      3. Remove the garlic and the potatoes, set aside.

      4. With the same pan, totally remove the oil. Add pork and chicken. Cook for 5 minutes or until the color turns light brown.
       

      5. Add all the other ingredients except for the vinegar, fried garlic and potatoes. Cover.  Let boil and simmer  until the meats are tender or until most of the liquid evaporates.

      6. Now add the vinegar and simmer for another 5 minutes. Do not cover!
       

      7. Add salt to taste. Put-in the fried garlic and potatoes, stir, and cook for 2 minutes.
       

      8. Serve. Share and Bon appetit!



      TIPS:
      (This is what i did to my chicken and pork adobo like the one in the photo above.) 

      1. If you want the sauce to become reach and thick, just mix 2 tbsp. of cornstarch/flour and 1/2 cup of water. Pour it slowly to chicken pork adobo while stirring continuously over low fire. The thickness of the adobo sauce still depends on you.

      2. If you are a typical filipino who likes his adobo recipe sweet, just add more brown sugar according to your taste.
