Adobo de Chancho / Pork Adobo Peruvian Style

We tested this recipe out and it was delicious. A friend of my sisters submitted it. If you try it out please leave a comment about how it was.


2 lbs of pork sirloin, cubed
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
3/4 cup of dark beer, chica de jora or vinegar
1/4 cup of chili powder
1 tsp of paprika
1 tsp of oregano
1 tsp of cumin powder
2 bay leaves
salt & pepper to taste


1 small red onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 large peeled & seeded tomato, chopped finely
1/2 cup of fresh green peas
salt & pepper to taste

Mix the pork with all the ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl
and leave refrigerated overnight. Remove meat and reserve marinade

Coat Dutch oven with cooking spray over medium-high heat and brown the
meat in batches until done. Remove and keep warm. Add onion and cook
until soft, 5-7 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1
minute. Add tomato and half the marinade liquid and stir. When hot add
the pork and cover tightly cook about 30 minutes. Add peas and
continue cooking until meat and vegetables are tender, about 15
minutes more. Serve with rice and sweet potatoes. Serves 8.

    Disappointed. Doesn’t look like picture at all. Real recipe has Peruvian chilli paste and red wine vinegar. 1/4 cup chilli powder definitely too much.

      Aloha Ruben,

      This was submitted by my Sisters Peruvian friend. This is the way she does it. If you look through the comments you’ll see other’s commenting on how they customize it to their liking. You can do the same. Mahalo for your suggestions.

    Tips from my Peruvian mama that improved the recipe:

    Add mint (dried to the marinade and fresh to the broth)

    Add red wine vinegar

    At the end add fresh bread crumbs (1 slice of bread) to thicken the broth slightly.

    Otherwise recipe worked great!

    I don’t think the traditional Peruvian Chancho en Adobo has green peas in the recipe.

      So great how you can customize recipes to your liking right :) This was submitted by my Sisters Peruvian friend. I guess that’s the way her family does it. Aloha
