|This Filipino recipe is pork that's marinated with vinegar and soy sauce, simmered, and then browned.|
(This revisited recipe was updated with new photos and better directions in April 2011.) In the Phillipines, there is a style of cooking commonly called Adobo, in which chicken, pork, or most often a combination of the two are cooked in soy sauce, vinegar, and water, which has been seasoned with lots of garlic, bay leaves, and black pepper. Then the meat is browned or even grilled, and served with the cooking liquid, which is reduced to a tasty thick brown sauce. I've seen recipes for this in many different places, but when this recipe appeared in my local newspaper back in 2005, I decided to give it a try.
