When the Spaniards came to the Philippines they came uo on a people who cooked their food in vinegar, and called this dish Adobo
wich means to marinate / marinade in spanish. What the ingredients was in a pre-spanish adobo we do ot know, except that it contained vinegar.
Todays the Filipino adobo is made different from region to region, I’ve even read a recipe with coconut milk.
This dish can be made with different types of meat, but the most common is chicken and pork.
Todays version is with pork
Etter på steker man opp kjøttet
Combine the pork, soy sauce, garlic and sugar in a bowl an let the pork marinade for an hour or so.
