How to cook adobo?
by: Shirley narra
Living in a foreign country make us crave for the dishes that we've been used to eat. One of that I really missed is my mother's classic adobo. Good thing that she had taught me to cook while I'm growing up, that's why I let my friend tasted my home county's signature dish.

 Let me tell you how to cook adobo. By the way you can choose whether pork or chicken.

1 1/2 lbs pork belly, chopped or
1 1/2 lbs chicken, cut into serving pieces
2 teaspoons whole peppercorn
1 head garlic, slightly crushed
6 tablespoons vinegar (white or sugar cane)
3/4 to 1 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
Salt to taste
3 tablespoons cooking oil

1.Heat oil in a pan, add the garlic. Cook until the color turns golden brown.
2.Remove the garlic and set aside. Add pork or chicken. Cook for 5 minutes or until the color turns light brown.
3.Add whole peppercorn, soy sauce, and water. Let boil and simmer until the meats are tender.
4.Pour-in vinegar and let boil. Simmer until most of the liquid evaporates.
5.Add salt to taste. Put-in the fried garlic, stirs, and cook for 2 minutes. Serve. Share and enjoy!
