Adobo (a famous filipino dish cooked in vinegar and soy sauce) is a filipino food
favorite. May the recipe be done with pork, chicken or a combination of both. It could be also good with beef. There are lots of variations in cooking adobo recipe, which I have listed below after the adobong baboy recipe.

Cooking Conversion Chart

Below are some of the most common cooking
measurements conversions in chart format.

Since most of the recipes found in this site are listed using US or Imperial measurements meaning they are in cups, teaspoons, tablespoons
, ounces and pounds; I've create a page as a reference for easy cooking measurements conversion from imperial to metric. These charts are the common cooking conversion chart that I usually use and it’s really a great help.

You'll also notice that most of the cooking measurements figures are rounded off so don't be surprise if you compare the numbers of the cooking conversion chart with a conversion calculator, there's a negligible difference.

Remember, wherever you are in the part of the world, these cooking measurements conversion charts will come in very handy.

Filipinos (Pinoy –as we call ourselves) love garlicky and tangy flavors of food dishes. That’s why adobo recipe was created. Just by smelling the aroma of it, you’ll surely feel hungry or even salivate.

Filipino food like this adobong baboy, is one of my favorite recipe cooking list.

Ingredients :

· 1-1/2 lb. pork, cut into serving pieces
· 3 cloves garlic, crushed
· 1/3 cup vinegar
· 3 tbsp. soy sauce
· 1 bay leaf
· salt to taste
· 1/4 tsp. pepper or 1 tsp. peppercorns
· 1 tbsp. sugar (optional)
· 1/2 cup water
· oil, for frying

Cooking Procedures :

1. Combine all ingredients in a big pot except the oil and let stand for at least 30 minutes.

2. Place pot over medium heat and bring to a boil.

3. Lower the heat and simmer covered until meat is tender for about an hour (checking occasionally for the water not to get dry, just add a little water each time you see its almost dry up). You may adjust the seasoning according to your taste and liking. Drain and reserve sauce. Set aside.

4. Meanwhile, heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Fry the meat until lightly brown on all sides. Set aside and keep warm.

5. Pour off all remaining oil from the pan. Pour in back the meat and reserve sauce. Mix for about a few minutes while scraping up the bits on the bottom of pan.

6. Remove from heat. Serve hot.

Variations in Cooking Adobong Baboy Recipe (Braised Pork in Tangy Sauce):

- For a truly garlicky adobo, sauté crushed garlic cloves in oil. Add finely sliced medium onion and cook until soft. Set aside. Lightly brown the adobo in oil. Pour reserve sauce over it and add the sautéed garlic and onions.

- Or, you may also do the following. Lightly brown the adobo in oil. Add in garlic, onions, tomatoes and sauté for a few minutes until becomes soft and wilted. Add slices of green and red bell peppers and stir. Pour sauce over mixture and simmer for a few minutes.

- Fried plantain bananas or fried potatoes may be used as a garnish with adobo

- Adobo may also be served with the sauce of sautéed garlic, onions and tomatoes cooked until soft and wilted. And add a tbsp. of bagoong, if desired.

- You may use adobo with plain fried rice, by shredding or cut it into small pieces. Season the rice with some of the sauce instead of using salt in it.

- You can also serve this adobo recipe with fried eggs and rice for breakfast by slicing it thinly and pan fry or broil. Or if you may, you can use it as a filling for grilled sandwiches.
