So you think I can’t cook
You’re wrong. I have taste buds and most of the time, I can tell the ingredients and how it’s cooked just by tasting the dish. Please come in to my little kitchen. If you see my housemaid following instructions with the chopping, it’s because I cook while hubbing.
Adobo is a Spanish word for Marinade. It is famous among Filipino People. I cook my Adobo with a little twist, which lucky for you, I am sharing it among fellow hubbers. I have a secret ingredient to make the meat taste better and tender.
Adobo is great with rice. As you all know, you can take away everything from the Filipino people but RICE is an exception. We love our rice, and if you don’t mind, we love it everyday. Three times, please and an extra rice would be nice.
1 kilo pork belly
1 can of regular coca cola
4 gloves of minced garlic
4 dried bayleaf
1/2 teaspoon peppercorn
1/8 cup soy sauce
1/8 cup cane vinegar
salt to taste
1. Slice the pork into cubes. Place it in a casserole and pour 1 can of coca cola. Add your garlic, peppercorn and bayleaf. Cook in medium heat and let it simmer for 30 minutes to 45 minutes. Stir occasionally.
2. Add your soy sauce, vinegar and salt to taste. Let it simmer for another 30 minutes. Stir occasionally. Serve.
NOTE: If you want your Adobo with a little bit of sauce or you prefer it dry, it’s okay. I usually leave a little bit of sauce for the little kids. I can heat it again for the next serving and let it dry this time. Both taste good.
My secret ingredient is the Coca Cola. The meat is tender and even the fat itself taste better. Normally, Adobo is simmered with water not coke. However, I know which one taste better.
*** ENJOY YOUR MEAL***
