Chili-Garlic Adobo Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic peeled, finely chopped
  • 1 kilogram pork pigue cubed
  • 1/2 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Vinegar
  • 5 cloves Garlic peeled, lightly smashed
  • 3 cups water or as needed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chili-garlic sauce
  • black pepper to taste


  • In a medium-size pressure cooker over medium heat, heat oil. Add garlic, and saute only until fragrant.
  • Add pork cubes, soy sauce, vinegar, smashed garlic, and just enough water to cover. Season with ground black pepper to taste. Bring to a boil. Remove scum that rises to the surface. Cover, then lock lid. Simmer for 20 minutes or until pork is just tender, taking care to release pressure of pot before opening.
  • Once pork is just tender, stir in chili-garlic sauce, then bring to a simmer without a lid. Simmer until liquid reduced into a sauce. Serve with steamed rice and snow peas. Recipe originally published in the April 2016 issue of Good Housekeeping.
