Another quick and easy recipe (it’s all I ever make) that can be doubled without a lot of math. Adobo is traditional Filipino dish, though I’m not sure if this is my family’s recipe or not. You can make it with either chicken or pork.
Chicken or Pork Adobo
2 lbs chicken or pork, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup vinegar
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup soy sauce
3 garlic cloves, smashed
1/2 Tablespoon peppercorns
1 bay leaf
At all ingredients to a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, 45 minutes.
See, I told you it was easy!
Mix 2 Tablespoons cornstarch with small amount of water and add to sauce to thicken. Serve over hot rice.
I usually fish out the garlic cloves and bay leaf before serving. You’ll probably want to pick out the peppercorns while you’re eating. It’s ok to eat them if you like, but they are pepper after all. My children call them “hotcorns”.
