Who knew soy sauce and vinegar could have such a deliciously beautiful love affair as in this pork adobo? Tangy, zingy and satisfying, pour this Filipino-style marinated meat over white rice for a warm and filling meal, any time of year.
2 1/2 pounds of pork
6 cloves of garlic, chopped or pressed
4 dried bay leaves
1/2 cup of white vinegar
1/2 cup of soy sauce
1 1/2 cups of water
As much salt as you think is necessary
White rice, as a side.
Marinate the pork in the soy sauce and garlic for 2-3 hours before cooking.
In a large pot, cook the marinated pork over medium heat for 5 minutes until it’s a little bit browned.
Add the water, bay leaves and boil for an hour.
Add the vinegar and simmer the mixture for 15 minutes or so.
Add the salt.
Pour over white rice or eat warm by itself. Yum!
