Simple Pork Adobo

It's not everyday we eat adobo in the house. Thanks to Tiyang Sima of my husband who taught me how to cook adobo should I want to prepare one. Her recipe was very simple:

1/2 kilo pork ( can be pigue, kasim, pata)
soy sauce
DM vinegar
white sugar
crushed garlic, onion
Thai fish sauce (optional)

In a pan, combine sliced pork with water, vinegar, soy sauce and peppercorn. Cook the combination over low fire for an hour or two. Then set aside.

In a separate pan, saute garlic until it turns brown, add in the onion and the sugar. Toss until the sugar melts. Put the pre cooked meat together with its sauce to the sauteed ingredients. Simmer for a few minutes. Then it's ready for serving!

Best served with plain rice and steamed veggies!

How about you, what's your adobo made of?
