What is Adobo?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Adobo (from Spanish adobar: “marinade,” “sauce” or “seasoning”) is a popular dish and cooking process in Philippine cuisine that involves meat, seafood, or vegetables marinated in vinegar, soy sauce, and garlic, which is browned in oil, and simmered in the marinade. It has sometimes been considered as the unofficial national dish in the Philippines.
If you mention Adobo, majority of Filipino knows how to cook them but every Island and Region have their own way of cooking this very popular dish. Honestly, this dish is not only known to Filipino people but also became very in demand to non Filipino. In our household, my son always ask me to cook it for him. It has been also one of my husband’s fave dish. Here in the States or anywhere abroad, it is hard to find Filipino ingredients, if you are not living in big cities. Since my son love the dish, he even call himself Adobo kid. It really touched me when he embraces my culture.So, I decided to share with you a video which I found on youtube on how to cook this mouthwatering dish.
