Pork Adobo

  • Brienne Boortz
  • Pork Adobo


3 tbsp. vegetable oil

5 garlic cloves, crushed

1 medium yellow onion, chopped

2 lbs. pork cubes

½ c. vinegar

1 c. soy sauce

1 c. water

1 tbsp. ground black pepper

1 tbsp. sugar


Brown the garlic in the oil, then add the onion. Cook until the onion is tender, then add the remaining ingredients.

Simmer for 45 minutes over medium heat and serve. Serves between 5 and 8.


This is one of the most common Filipino dishes, and it's pretty much recognized worldwide. Trying to find someone who doesn't eat, or know about, adobo can be very difficult, because once someone has tried it, they are pretty much converted. It is comforting because it is so familiar and just about everyone can identify with it. In a sense, once you say "adobo," people generally make an immediate connection with Filipino food.
