Adobo Fried Rice sounds like a good idea for your leftover rice and adobo. This simple fried rice recipe is quick and easy to prepare. This is best served for breakfast with Filipino omelet or sunny-side-up fried egg.
The success of this dish will depend on the quality of the pork adobo or chicken adobo that you will use. The meat should be tender so that your adobo fried rice will be more pleasant to eat. Make sure that you do not include the sauce when cooking the fried rice because it will be absorbed by the rice, which will make the texture somewhat sticky.
I love to have lots of toasted garlic with my fried rice. This is the reason why I am using 8 cloves of garlic for this recipe. You can adjust the garlic depending on your preference, but I would say that 8 cloves is still the way to go.
