Enjoying this dish

Adobo is one of the most iconic dishes that can be found in all Filipino restaurants in Vancouver and now with this fantastic and easy recipe you can make it in your very own kitchens with little problems. There is even a movie made about this very dish called American Adobo.

Can I use different meats?

By all means, this amazing dish can be made with Chicken (Manok) and Pork (Baboy) and we have even tried it with Tofu for the Planet Based crowds out there. You can also add spinach, snake beans, and eggplant.

One thing that is in my opinion very important try to use as many authentic ingredients as possible, for example, Soy Sauce and Vinegar, I always if possible use a name brand that I would find in the Philippines such as Datu Puti Vinegar and Datu PutiSoy Sauce which can be easily be found at T&T markets, or any Asian grocery store or if are an avid Amazontonian then you can order this brand in from there. Amazon.ca has a combination of vinegar and soy sauce, 1-liter bottles for $22.75, and free delivery.
