Adobo (Bistek Style)

Adobo is one of Filipino's favorite dish and this is always served when there is a special occasion or just a dinner with the whole family. I have seen different ways of cooking this one but I like how my father does it. This is my father's specialty and I learned cooking Adobo from him. The same recipe is used when cooking Chicken or Pork Adobo. You may try it too.

This Adobo is cooked just like how Filipino Bistek is cooked. I like marinating it with a mixture of soy sauce (1/2 cup) and vinegar (1 cup) with onions, bell peppers, ground pepper and lots of garlic for at least 30 minutes or so to make it more tasty. You may add a bit of sugar if you want. It tastes good too just like the Humba.
Then fry it on a hot skillet with a bit of cooking oil, setting the marinade aside. This will be used later when the meat is golden brown or cooked.

Add the marinade then simmer. Meat is ready when gravy is almost dry. Serve with hot cooked rice.
