Pork Adobo with Boiled Eggs

As we all know, Pork Adobo has been one of the favorite Filipino Recipes. Inadobo, which is the manner of cooking this dish, has been regarded as a traditional method of cooking meat and vegetables. This Pork Adobo Recipe is another unique version of the same dish that all of us love.

What make this dish stand out are not the eggs. I must admit that having boiled eggs with pork adobo is a good idea. However, the magnificent taste was actually derived from the additional ingredients which are the oyster sauce and dry sherry. These additional ingredients when combined with the traditional (vinegar and soy sauce) produces a great tasting dish.

Aside from having a good taste, the secret in preparing the best adobo dish is all in the meat. Make sure that the pork is as tender as it can be. You can simmer the pork for about 1 hour to make it tender and to extract the entire porky flavor.

  1. i just want to ask if ok lang ba na wala nang dry sherry?
    mag iiba ba or kulang kung walang dry sherry sa adobo?
    tnx.. :)

    • Vanessa, dry sherry helps hype-up the taste taking it to a different level. It will still taste ok if you won’t add it though, but there will be a huge difference in the overall taste.
