Traditional Adobo Recipe

This is one of my husband's favorite Pinoy recipe. I got this from a Filipino-American cookbook that I bought in the Philippines and I thought I might share this with you all. I made this countless times since I arrived here in the US and I must say it tastes perfectly yummy. Check out the recipe below.

1-1/2 lb. pork shoulder or country-style ribs cut into 1-1/2" cubes
1/3 cup vinegar
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. salt
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 small bay leaf
¼ tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. sugar
½ cup water
2 tbsp. cooking oil

Combine all ingredients except cooking oil, in a pot and let stand for at least 30 minutes.
Simmer covered for 1 hour or until meat is tender. Drain and reserve sauce.
Heat cooking oil in skillet. Brown meat on all sides. Transfer to a serving dish.
Pour off all remaining oil from skillet. Add reserved sauce and cook for a minute or two scraping all browned bits sticking to pan. Pour sauce over meat and serve.

Variation: May be done with chicken or a combination of chicken and pork. Serves 4-6.
