  • 1 1/2 lb meatballs see meatball recipe here
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 6 cloves garlic crushed
  • 3/4 cup beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon peppercorn
  • 4 pieces dried bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated white sugar
  • Salt to taste


  • Heat oil in a pan.
  • Put-in the garlic. Let the garlic cook until the color turns light brown. Make sure to keep an eye on the garlic so that it won't get burnt.
  • Add the meatballs, peppercorn, and bay leaves. I am using cooked meatballs and the recipe link is available above.
  • Pour-in the soy sauce and beef broth. Add the sugar. Stir and let boil.
  • Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Add vinegar and a little water if the liquid starts to dry-up.
  • Try to taste your meatball adobo and add salt if necessary.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl. Serve.
  • Share and enjoy!
