Adobo Steak Recipe

Presenting this oh so delicious Adobo Steak Recipe from my test kitchen. Several Adobo Steak recipes are readily available around. However, this recipe is very different because there is a Filipino Adobo touch in it. I’m pretty sure that you will like this.

Adobo Steak

I have some recommendations though, so that you can enjoy the same dish as we did. Number one, use the most tender part of the beef for this recipe. Beef tenderloin is the most recommended part, but you can also use beef sirloin if it is not available. Number two, do not use other types of vinegar other than red wine vinegar. This vinegar has a unique flavor that brings out the best in this dish.Lastly, try not to over eat.

Enjoy your meal!

      Made this last night and it was a hit with my kids and wifey..

      I would just like to say that as being a filipino american and only one who cooks at home; after getting married and leaving my parents; I had to learn how to cook. I’ve always liked filipino food that my mom has cooked and just did not know how to; Until I saw your website. Easy how to directions and the food is amazing. Great work, were no longer starving and buying take out anymore! I have learned to cook thanks to you, all my favorite filipino cuisine… Thank you

    2. Hi, what are the alternative for red wine vinegar? Thanks a lot!

      i’ve tried cooking this recipe and it really tasted good!…now i have added menu to prepare for my family. thanks and more recipes to come…^_^

    4. hi!
      i only have white wine vinegar in my kitchen.
      can i use it instead of red wine vinegar?

      • Although they are both vinegar, white and red have different taste. You may use white wine vinegar, but it will affect the taste in a way.

    5. I found beef tenderloin on sale, I bought about 4 lbs (package), I cooked half of it (2 lbs); I have the ingredients available in the pantry. Love the adobo steak; my son ate half of the adobo I cooked, so I cooked the other half (remaining 2 lbs), my other 2 sons love it too. I would say that the red wine vinegar and honey made the difference in taste from my regular adobo. My son requested this for my grandson’s bday party last Sunday. I always watch the sale, so I bought more and cooked for the party; it was a hit.

    6. This looks delicious! I will definitely try this recipe out.
