All the Adobo Recipes You Absolutely Need to Bookmark

Who doesn’t love classic Pinoy adobo flavors?

Adobo is a cooking technique that involves cooking meat, seafood, or vegetables in a sauce made up of vinegar, soy sauce, black pepper corns, and bay leaves. The flavors that you get are deeply savory and tangy—and you can use this sauce to cook almost anything.



Here are 10 delicious adobo recipes that you absolutely have to try at home. While the classic and simple chicken and pork adobo is great in itself, these recipes are adobo variations that include fun ingredients like gata or coconut milk, turmeric, atsuete, and more.
