What is Adobo?

Adobo is one of the famous foods Pinoys are known for. While unofficial, it is considered the national food of the Philippines.

There are many regional variations in the way adobo is cooked but the basics remain the same. It is a Filipino traditional dish using chicken, pork or vegetables marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, white vinegar, sugar, garlic, peppercorns and bay leaves. The meat is browned and then  simmered on the marinate until it becomes tender and ready to be served.

Why I Love Adobo

I love adobo because of its delicious taste. Aside from that, you can make it in big batch and you can put it in the fridge for days. You can just thaw it or reheat when you want to eat it again.  The longer time you eat it, the better-tasting it becomes because the marinate and the spices is already absorbed by the meat making it more tastier.
