o 1 kg pork (cut into cubes) 1/2 kg chicken (cut into cubes) 1/2 cup Soy sauce 1 clove garlic (chopped) ½ onions (chopped) 1 pc ginger (crushed) 1 pack laurel leaves with seeds 1/4 cup vinegar 1 cup water 1 tbsp salt 1 tbsp sugar 1 tsp black pepper 1 tbsp olive oil 2 cups lemon juice 1 small can pineapple tidbits
1. Pre-heat the frying pan on high heat. 2. Put the oil on the very hot pan. 3. Put garlic, onions and ginger to the hot frying pan. 4. Saute pork and chicken until it turns light brown on medium heat. Mix the pork and chicken well for evenly cook. To reduce fat, you can saute the pork first and let the fats dissolve. Remove excessive oil from the frying pan (saturated fats are not good for our cardiovascular health). 5. Pour lemon juice and pineapple juice from the can and let it boil for 5- 10 minutes, but dont let it dry out. The pork and chicken will absorb the taste of the lemon and pineapple, and will make the meat tender. Adding more lemon juice only improves the taste, in my opinion. 6. Pour water, vinegar, pineapple tidbits, whole laurel leaves with seeds and soy sauce, and then simmer it for 15-20 minutes on medium heat with constant stirring. 7. After 15-20 minutes, add black pepper, salt and sugar to taste. 8. Serve your Filipino adobo in a bowl. Servings are good for 3-5 persons. Adobo in the Philippines is usually served with rice.

1 large sirloin Adobo seasoning (see note below) 3 tablespoons cider vinegar 2 tablespoons canola oil 1 large onion
Pat the steak dry. Rub with the Adobo seasoning. Pour the vinegar into a dish, and put the steak on top. Let sit 15 minutes, flip steak, and let site 15 minutes more. While the steak is hanging out, slice the onion thinly into long strips. When steak is done, remove and set aside. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat, and pour in the oil. When oil starts to shimmer, place steak in pan. I like mine medium-rare, so I cooked it about 4 to 5 minutes per side, but it depends on the thickness of the steak. Remove steak, add a touch more oil, and throw in the onions. Sauté quickly, until they’ve slightly blackened but haven’t lost their crunch. * If you don’t have adobo seasoning, then mix equal parts onion powder, garlic powder, and groud black pepper, with twice as much salt. Sprinkle a little dried oregano on top and mix together.
