The Famous (Filipino cuisine), “Adobo”

Here is my first easy to cook recipes and its the most common but very famous Filipino recipe of all time, the “Adobo” recipe. Later, i’m gonna show variety of ways on how to cook this delicious Filipino cuisine. But first I’m gonna give some brief description of what an “Adobo” is. Maybe some of you still don’t know what kind of food and how does this food taste specially those who are non-Filipino people out there. The name “Adobo” was taken from the Spanish, but the cooking method is indigenous to the Philippines. Before, “Adobo” involves meat, chicken or seafood marinated in a sauce of vinegar and garlic, browned in oil, and simmered in the marinade which was later on added different variety of ingredients and cooking techniques. It has relatively long shelf-life because of one of its primary ingredients, vinegar, which inhibits the growth of bacteria. The essence of adobo has been also developed commercially and has been adapted to other foods like nuts, chips, flavored rice, and corn crackers.
