“Adobong Baboy is one of my favorite pinoy recipes.” This post will tell you how I perfected my recipe, “Adobong Baboy”. I tried to prepare it before for several times when I was still staying with my aunts in Malitbog, Southern Leyte but I failed to perfect it (according to my taste preference).
Since the start of our stay here in our rented apartment unit (Maasin City), we haven’t yet cooked our food. We just went to carenderias (restaurant) and ordered the food we wanted to eat. But we couldn’t save money if we’ll continue doin it. We really need to cook our own food.
Early this morning while my wife was still sleeping, I went to the market and bought 1/2 kilogram of pork. I was planning to prepare my favorite “Adobong Baboy”. I also bought a liter of cane vinegar, garlic, black pepper, laurel, oil and a bottle of soy sauce. These are the ingredients which my wife had told me last night. She of course didn’t know that I was really planning to cook “Adobong Baboy” for her.
So much for a story….
By the way, here’s what I did according to what my wife has told me last night.
- Fry the pork cubes until it looks brown.
- Add 1/2 cup vinegar, 1/4 cup soy souce, 2 to 5 leaves of laurel, chopped garlic and black pepper.
- When the liquid is about to dry, add 1/4 or 1/2 cup of water and continue cooking for about a minute.
- Serve it.
To summarize the ingredients:
- 1/2 kilogram pork
- 1/2 cup vinegar
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup water
- 5 leaves of laurel
- 1 sachet (market retail) black pepper
- 1 garlic
And the result is the perfected “Adobong Baboy” (with perfect taste according to my own taste preference).
If only you’re here, I will let you eat my “Adobong Baboy”.
