Pork Adobo Recipe

Pork Adobo is considered as one of the popular dishes in the Philippines. Its distinct blend of sour, sweet and salty taste makes it well-loved by Pinoys who love to eat. Pork Adobo can be eaten anytime of the day from breakfast to dinner as it can go with freshly cooked rice, fried rice and even bread. There are several variations and means to cook Pork Adobo the Filipino way.

My version of Pork Adobo is cooked like how my mother and my grandmother prepared it for our family.

What you’ll need:

Pork cubes
Soy sauce
Laurel leaves
Salt and Sugar to taste


Mix all the ingredients; bring to a boil until the meat is tender. Stir occasionally. You can add more water if you want to have a saucy Adobo. Set the temperature to low heat in later part of cooking. You can also fry the meat in its own sauce/oil until you achieve your desired amount of sauce. Personally, I want it with less sauce or oil. The best part is when you ladle the oily sauce over hot steamy rice, don’t you agree?  🙂

      @Vix, sa tingin ko rin mas masarap magluto ng adobo ang mga nanay. Personally, ganun observation ko sa luto ng mother ko at ng Lola ko noon. 🙂

    YUUUUUUUUMMMMY! Thanks for sharing this! I love everything adobo! I even have about 2 or 3 adobo books to prove it. Seems I am always on the lookout for the best adobo dish. But I know that is an impossibility for ANY adobo (especially pork) is just GOOOOOOD! Sauce or oil, with or without toyo. Masarap silang lahat!

    Now I’m hungry again…. 😀
