Ingredient Quantity
Pork or Chicken 1 kg
Soy Sauce 1 cup
Vinegar 1 cup
Garlic 6 cloves
Bay Leaves 2 pieces
Black Peppercorns 1 teaspoon
Water 1 cup

Cooking Instructions:

  • Step 1: In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce, vinegar, minced garlic, bay leaves, and black peppercorns. Add the pork or chicken pieces to the marinade, making sure they are evenly coated. Let the meat marinate for at least 1 hour, or refrigerate overnight for best results.
  • Step 2: Heat a large pot or pan over medium heat. Add the marinated meat and the marinade to the pot, along with 1 cup of water. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and simmer the meat for about 1 hour, or until it becomes tender and the flavors have melded together.
  • Step 3: Once the meat is cooked, remove it from the pot and set it aside. Increase the heat to medium-high and let the sauce reduce and thicken for about 10 minutes, or until it reaches your desired consistency. You can skim off any excess fat that rises to the surface during this process.
  • Step 4: Slice or shred the cooked meat, then return it to the pot and stir it into the thickened sauce. Allow the meat to heat through for a few minutes.
  • Step 5: Serve the adobo hot with steamed rice. Enjoy!
