Cooking Pork Adobo Ginisa-style

Cooking pork adobo may be done in several ways. Some like their adobo dry; others, saucy. In this post however, I'll share with you how to cook pork adobo, ginisa-style. It's the one in the middle - not too dry, not so much sauce, either.

Read on for the detailed recipe.

First of all, adobo is a dish common to every Filipino household. It's pork or chicken or both, seasoned in vinegar, soy sauce and spices. Because of these basic ingredients, adobo does not easily spoil. It can be stored in the fridge over a long period of time. More so, the longer it is kept, the stronger the flavors become. Ready for the recipe? Here we go.

Ingredients in cooking pork adobo ginisa-style:
- pork tenderloin, cut in small pieces
- garlic, crushed and chopped
- onions, cut

Pork adobo may be done in so many ways. This one here has less cholesterol since I used pork tenderloin. If you like pork fats though (super yum, but dangerous for the heart), then I suggest you use pork butt. You can also add margarine into this recipe to add more flavor. Again, this would result to added fats, trans fats in this case.

12. Put in the laurel leaves last. It adds aroma into the dish.
13. Make your last adjustments to the vinegar and soy sauce before removing the dish from the pan.
