Easy Filipino Pork or Chicken Adobo

11 ingredients
4-6 servings
One of the most popular dishes of the Philippines!!! I'm half Filipino...this is the method both my parents used to cook this yummy meal. I like to add potatoes to the Pork style only. Also note: This is as close to the measurements that I could guesstimate. When I was taught to cook this dish, my parents would just dump in the ingredients. I've done the same since and learned to perfect it on my own. I chose to use some of the ingredients I listed because my belief in traditional diets. Lard, coconut oil and bones (for marrow) give the dish the most authentic flavor you can find. When my grandmother would cook with bones, she'd break them to release as much marrow as possible. I hope you're willing to try it and enjoy it! My family and In-laws can't get enough of it!!!
