Philippine adobo
« on: December 28, 2016, 12:44:06 AM »
Happened to catch Bourdain in the Phillipines and one of the dishes he had was adobo. Decided to give it a try and it is delicious.

2 lb chicken cubed
2 lb pork cubed
8 cloves garlic chopped
1/2 onion chopped
3 bay leaves
1 tsp peppercorns
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 cup water

Combine everything and marinate for 2 hours in the fridge. Cook on low simmer for 2 hours. Reduce liquid till thick and serve over rice.

Sounds delicious. Next time try chicken on the bone, the bones add richness and a lipsmacking dimension from the gelatin.
Ive never had adobo with 2 proteins.

Me either, it has been strictly bone in leg quarters.  No water, and my wife's step mom uses very spicy chili paste.

Bourdain's host used pork and chicken. Next time will definitely be on the bone because deboned thigh meat disintegrates by the end of the cook, but is still delicious!

Yep, that's pretty much the recipe the late great Cruz Campo, who lived in the Philippines, gave me 10 years ago. Good stuff. Try it with a good Asian vinegar, like filipino palm or Chinese black, sometime.
