As we all know, Pork Adobo has been one of the favorite Filipino Recipes. Inadobo, which is the manner of cooking this dish, has been regarded as a traditional method of cooking meat and vegetables. This Pork Adobo Recipe is another unique version of the same dish that all of us love.
What make this dish stand out are not the eggs. I must admit that having boiled eggs with pork adobo is a good idea. However, the magnificent taste was actually derived from the additional ingredients which are the oyster sauce and dry sherry. These additional ingredients when combined with the traditional (vinegar and soy sauce) produces a great tasting dish.
Aside from having a good taste, the secret in preparing the best adobo dish is all in the meat. Make sure that the pork is as tender as it can be. You can simmer the pork for about 1 hour to make it tender and to extract the entire porky flavor.

this recipe is Great!. my hubby and my toddler loved the taste. I used port tail meat with the bones on, since it is naturally soft in texture. I marinated for only 30 mins, I used light soy sauce and rice wine vinegar (substitute to dry sherry). There was this simmering method for 40 mins that it got burned. I took off the meat and cooked it on another pot, and added 1.5 cups of water to reconstitute. When boiling I added the vinegar (red cane), sugar and the 2tbsp rice wine vinegar, and the boiled eggs. Yummy! Lessons learned, it is a blessing in disguise that the sauce burned, because 9 tbsp light soy sauce is too much for the meat. If using light soy sauce, perhaps reduce it by 3 tbsp, Still sarap, sarap!
What is a sherry?

Vanessa, dry sherry helps hype-up the taste taking it to a different level. It will still taste ok if you won’t add it though, but there will be a huge difference in the overall taste.
