Pork Adobo

 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Very good!

I don’t have chicken at the moment. I spent the afternoon re-arranging my drawing area. By the time Erik got home, I was on the floor re-arranging watercolor, acrylic, and oil paint tubes. I didn’t start cooking until 7pm.. since he  leaves very early (4am) for work tomorrow, we thought we better have an early dinner. This recipe is for the lazy bones.. it involves one pot + all the ingredients = cook until done. There are many different kinds of Adobo and this is by far my favorite recipe.

Ingredients: Thinly sliced pork(thin cuts cooks way faster), onions, grated ginger, minced garlic, 3 bay leaves, ground pepper or whole peppercorn, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup water, 3 tbsp vinegar, 1 tbsp mirin, and 2 tsp sugar(if you like it sweet)

Place everything in a pot and cover it. Cook and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes in medium high heat(make sure the onions are transparent….). Taste and see if you like the sweet/sourness of the sauce…From then on you got two choices, let the sauce evaporate or cook it for a couple more minutes until it’s reduced.

Once cooked..it is best served with rice and a sprinkle of togarashi pepper and sesame seeds.
