Description

A unique flavor blend from the Philippine Islands, and a favorite dinner at my house. Suitable for Atkins, keto, lchf, low carb, diabetic, low glycemic, gluten free, dairy free.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ pound Boneless Pork Shoulder (Or Skinless Boneless Chicken Thighs)
  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic, Chopped
  • ½ cups Silver Swan Soy Sauce, Or Other Filipino Brand (See Note)
  • ½ cups Datu Puti Vinegar, Or Other Filipino Cane Vinegar
  • ½ cups Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Coarse Ground Pepper (Or 20 Whole Black Peppercorns)
  • 2 whole Bay Leaves (Laurel)
  • Chopped Green Onion, For Garnish (optional)

Preparation

In a large pot, brown cubed chicken or pork in oil. Do this in two batches, if needed, to avoid crowding the meat and allowing it to brown.

Add garlic when meat is almost done, cook another minute. Add a little of the soy sauce and vinegar, deglaze the pan. Add remaining soy sauce and vinegar, bring to boil.

Add water, pepper and bay leaf. Stir. Reduce heat to simmer until tender, at least 20 minutes, but longer is okay.

Serve over cooked rice (cauliflower rice for low carb), with chopped green onions for garnish if desired.

Note: For gluten free or Keto/LCHF, use gluten free soy sauce or tamari.

Tip: Play with the ratios of soy sauce/vinegar/water to suit your palette. For a more authentic adobo, use whole peppercorns in place of the ground pepper.

Inspiration: An authentic Filipino adobo recipe given to me by my friend Anna, with a couple of modifications to suit our tastebuds and to assure a gluten-free meal.
