Adobong Sitaw is a vegetable dish composed of string beans cooked adobo style. As you might have noticed, almost all ingredients can be cooked using the famous adobo style – be it meat or vegetables. Chicken Adobo, Pork Adobo, Adobong Kambing, and Adobong Pusit are just few of the adobo dishes that we have featured – so far
Using pork in this recipe is optional. If you are one of our vegan friends, you can still enjoy this dish even when pork is not around. I only included pork in this recipe to add a little meaty taste to it, since I am a certified carnivore – as you might have known by now.
I like this healthy vegetable recipe not just by its nutritional value, making adobo out of string beans brings out this vegetable’s natural flavor which is often over powered by other vegetables and ingredients in dishes such as Pakbet Tagalog, Pakbet Ilocano, Kare Kare, and Sinigang.
