CHICKEN PORK ADOBO RECIPE
Adobo is the Spanish word for seasoning or marinade. The word is the first-person singular present indicative form of adobar, a Spanish verb meaning “to marinate.”
Adobo is also the name of a common and very popular cooking process in the Philippines; indeed it is considered a national group of dishes. Typically, pork or chicken, or a combination of both, is slowly cooked in soy sauce, vinegar, crushed garlic, bay leaf, and black peppercorns, and often browned in the oven or pan-fried afterward to get the desirable crisped edges.
