Authentic Filipino Meat Recipes

 

Pork Adobo / Adobong Baboy

Philippine Adobo is an indigenous Philippine cuisine. The origins of Philippine Adobo dates back centuries before the Spaniards arrived in the Philippines. Way back during China’s Song Dynasty (960 - 1279), Chinese merchants already had a harmonious trading relations with the natives of the Philippines. Records and annals of these travel and trades can be found in Zhu Fan Zhi, a book written by Chao Ju Kua, a Chinese superintendent of trade, published in 1225. The Chinese trades their silks, porcelain, and ceramics in exchange for herbs, spices, and crops. It was during those early times that the Chinese introduced "toyo" (Chinese Hokkien dialect: tāu-yu), referring to "soy sauce" in English. Soy sauce is one of the main ingredients of Philippine Adobo and is a traditional condiment in Southeast Asian cuisine that originated in China in 2nd century BCE. Philippine Adobo was created indigenously with the readily available ingredients in the island and cooking methods of the Filipino natives and Chinese traders. Philippine Adobo is a cuisine that Filipinos can proudly claim as their very own dish. It is an authentic Filipino recipe originally made by the natives in the Philippines.

Although Adobo is a Spanish word, the dish (Philippine Adobo) already existed long before the Spaniards arrived in the Philippines. When Philippines was colonized by Spain for nearly 400 years beginning in the early 15th century, the Spaniards saw that the dish (Philippine Adobo) is very similar to their own Spanish Adobo and so they named the Filipino dish marinated in garlic, vinegar, and soy sauce as Adobo. The version of Spanish Adobo consist mainly of paprika, oregano, salt, garlic, and vinegar. Spanish Adobo was widely adopted in Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba and other islands in the Caribbean and Latin America.

Pork adobo, also known as Adobong Baboy in tagalog, is a stewed pork meat in a mixture of garlic, vinegar, and soy sauce.  It is a very a popular Filipino recipe in the Philippines and almost every household knows how to prepare it for lunch, dinner, and even breakfast. In fact, it is a signature dish of the Filipinos. It is being served on special occasions like bario fiestas, birthdays, Christmas, noche beunas, christenings, weddings, meetings, reunions, and other important gatherings.

There are different variations of Philippine pork adobo, made from one region to another. In Batangas, for example, they love to sauté the pork first before stewing. In Pampanga, they love to use salt instead of soy sauce. In Laguna, they love to use sweet onions. In visayas, they love to add coconut milk. Other regions love to add sugar. Filipino pork adobo continues to evolve even abroad and here in Los Angeles, Angelenos like to add oyter sauce. However, the most common way of cooking pork adobo is by marinating the pork with garlic, soy sauce and vinegar.

Filipino Pork Adobo

Variation: Pork adobo with potatoes and aromatic bay leaves.

Adobong Baboy

Variation: Pork adobo with potatoes garnished with hard boiled eggs.

Adobo with Potato and Eggs

Healthier Adobo! Small cuts of pork with bigger cuts of potatoes.

Pork Adobo Ingredients:

1 kilo pork belly (liempo); cut into 2-inch sizes
1 head garlic; pounded
1/2 small onion; chopped
4 dried bay leaves
1/2 tablespoon peppercorns
6 tablespoons soy sauce
6 tablespoons vinegar
1 cup rice water
1 tablespoon oyster sauce (optional add-on)
Cooking oil

Pork Adobo Cooking Instructions:

Marinate pork in soy sauce, garlic, and peppercorns for 30 minutes.

Sauté onion, then drop the marinated pork and bay leaves. Continue sauteing until liquid has evaporated and meat starts to render fat. Pour the marinade including the bits of garlic and a cup of rice water. Continue boiling in medium fire until pork becomes tender. Pour vinegar and simmer until little oily sauce is left.

Another easy way of doing it is to combine the pork, vinegar, garlic, water, soy sauce, bay leaves, peppercorns, and other seasonings of your choice in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower heat to medium fire, and then cook until a thick oily sauce is formed. Serve hot!

Cooking Tips:

The basic ingredients of adobo is pork, soy sauce, garlic, vinegar, and water. The other ingredients are just additionals and optionals as others love to make their adobo special and like to have variations.

Boiling the pork without vinegar in the beginning of cooking procedure makes the process of pork tenderization faster. Add the vinegar when pork is already tender.

Adding 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce will make your pork adobo more delicious.

Pork loin or butt is a good substitute if you don't like pork belly for your adobo.

i thought I learned to cook adobo from a Filipino friend in Seattle, way back in the day (early eighties). I can't remember if she taught it to us this way or if we just made our own variation of it, but we added all spice ( in a loose tea holder), garbanzo beans, and water chestnuts,along with most of the ingredients in your recipe. We also let it simmer for hours until the pork was super tender and then served it over rice. Have you ever of it cooked this way? Delicious!

More adobo tips
* Use crushed not sliced or minced garlic.
* Add a little ginger when cooking chicken or pork-chicken adobo.
Some more tips in cooking adobo:

*Slow cooking over low fire and some patience.
* Experiment adding a just a little cumin powder or oregano for a new, exciting flavor.
* Instead of bay leaves, add few kaffir lime leaves (but don't let it overpower the aroma)

Adobo
I also make this same dish with Chicken instead of Pork you don't get all the fatty greasiness from Chicken like you do Pork,. It is a healthier way to eat a favorite dish, i myself don't add but water, soy sauce, bay leaves, garlic, vinegar, an salt an pepper, An i make rice to go with it. You can also use a variety of meat it is good to test out other ways to make it, i myself am Filipino an was raised in the house where my father cooked all these dishes we also had Yacsoba which is a Japanese dish but they only add the spaghetti an pork in our house it was cabbage celery onion an garlic along with a dash of soy sauce with the spaghetti, it is a great dish if you want the recipe i will put it on here just email me or ask me here it is a good dish an it only takes 30 mins, but prep time is 15 so it is a quick dish to enjoy with out all the sweat of cooking lol

when to add oyster sauce
i've tried cooking it a number of times! sure, you can add the oyster sauce anytime in your cooking but my experience reveals me that it's best if you add it last. i mean when you already achieved the formation of oily sauce in cooking this adobo recipe. it's more delicious and yummier to my taste!
#95 - hayle harlem - 09/24/2013 - 17:35

#93 - JJ - 08/04/2013 - 07:37

Pork adobo
I like adobo.....but when can I perfect to cook one....kailan kaya?
#90 - Bernadette - 02/20/2013 - 12:45
to me, the best adobo is getting the right texture of the sauce/liquid. Sometimes, it's too runny, probably as a result of not letting water evaporate out long enough. Sometimes it's too sludgy, probably not having enough water. The sauce should have a bit of natural oil on the top but thick enough so that it perfectly combines with the rice.

pork adobo
I wonder if i can use a jar of adobo sauce i found at the store? IS it the same thing as using vinegar and soysauce or if not what is it then? I was thinking making a nice white rice and putting pineapple in the rice and pour the adobo sauce over the pork shoulder pieces on top of the rice. WOULD That be good?

Adobo
@ Edwin Escobar

I've been a chef in a hotel here in Manila for almost 10 years. Here's the twist:

Saute the meat if you don't have the time to marinate. If you marinated the meat, then you don't need to saute.

Adobo Eggs, Anyone?
My mom cooks adobo using genuine sukang Paombong, which was fermented from nipa palm. You can also add hard-boiled eggs instead of just pork or chicken, for variety. :-)

I am American married to a Filipina; I come on this site all the time to see what I can learn to make for my wife. She is suprised what Filipino foods I have learned to cook. The way I cook my adobo is I marinade the pork in soy sauce, vinager, garlic, onions, fish sauce, and The Best Know secret that all True Filipino Cookers know the secret ingrediant that is not told to others that is put on the meat that is being used. Yes the White stuff... lol... Then I boil all the ingrediants adding more soy sauce to make the sauce a little thicker.

adobo without soy sauce ingredient
@ kelly

try this...drop the chopped onion (small or medium size) in the saucepan and on top is the sized pieces of pork. when onion becomes juicy, stir and add water to cover (u may add potatoes, little vinegar, garlic, peppercorns if u want to somehow still be called adobo but not necessary). when little sauce is left, add oyster sauce in the amount of ur pref and cook a little bit more.... no soy sauce needed.
#38 - patrick - 05/16/2011 - 08:42
another variation -- walang toyo
your recipes are as helpful as always! thank you! i'm just wondering if you can also post the other variation of adobo, the one where you wont have to add soy sauce? I remember it from years back -- I was young when I last had that for lunch, but I remember it was definitely adobo, though lighter in color and without the strong, distinct aroma of soy sauce.

Adobo soy sauce and vinegar
From my experience cooking Adobo with the right brand of soy sauce and the right type of vinegar is the key. Silver Swan soy sauce and palm vinegar are a must when preparing adobo.

Letchon baka(Calf leg)
Everytime when we come home to Phil, we always order a letchon baka(calf leg, It is very tender & tasty, specially if the Calf is quite young( I don't think there is secret of cooking a letchon baka(calf leg) the only secret is slow cooking, i.e cook in low heat for 6 to 8 hours. Just season the meat to taste.
best eaten hot,, otherwise they tend to be rubbery when it get cold.

@ veronica quimiro

try this...cook the adobo like the one in italics. when cooked take out the meat then saute with little mince garlic and onion. place in a plate and set aside. heat the sauce until it becomes thick like a gravy, then slowly pour over the adobo meat as its sauce.
#12 - ronnie - 11/01/2010 - 19:39
dried adobo
thanks for posting this adobo recipe. this is the laguna version of adobo and the one in italics is the ilocano version. i love this recipe that's why i have already tasted lots of adobo versions from different houses and places.

another way of cooking adobo is to cook like the one in italics until all the sauce runs dry. the meat produces its own oil. saute and spice more soy sauce it you want while sauteing. u may add onion if you wish to. i like this dried adobo version specially if fat of the meat is browned.

i agree with edwin i think that's the easiest way to cook adobo however before cooking you have to marinate the meat with all the ingredients for maybe an hour...

sauteing garlic then meat produces the best result.

you never put onions in adobo Laurel leaves are used for chicken and oregano for pork and they are optional. No sugar, no MSG, no cooking oil, pork will produce more than enough oil.

no sauteing is involved cooking adobo.
To cook adobo, put all ingredients together in a saucepan (chicken or pork, cracked peppercorns, garlic, vinegar and soy sauce) bring to a boil, simmer until cooked.
