How to Make Adobo Rice
So, I mentioned about how to make crusted pork chop, but what about the adobo rice? Making your own adobo rice is quick and easy. Here is how I do it:
My secret is using leftovers – yes, I use leftover pork adobo or chicken adobo and steamed white rice to make adobo rice. I do it by first shredding the meat using my hands. Make sure that you have enough adobo sauce left, as it will help make the dish taste better. As for the rice, I add around half a teaspoon of salt for every 4 cups of leftover rice. I use my hands to gently mix the salt with the rice; it prevents the rice from sticking from each other in the process.
Here comes the easy part — cooking the adobo rice. Assuming that you have 4 cups of leftover rice, heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil in a wok and then put-in 2 cloves of minced garlic. Add the shredded adobo meat (pork or chicken) once the garlic starts to brown. Cook the meat for 1 minute and then add the rice in. Toss and cook for 5 to 7 minutes. Add around 3 tablespoons of adobo sauce while tossing the rice. Now you have your delicious adobo rice. All you have to do is follow the recipe below for the crusted pork chop.
