Adobong Baboy

Adobong Baboy

(source: translated from Kain Na book 2 by Maya Kitchen with revisions)


1 kilo pork meat (liempo or kasim), cubed
2 pc. potatoes, cubed
1/3 cup vinegar (optional)
2 tbsp garlic, crushed
1 pc laurel leaf
2-3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
salt and pepper
1 tbsp oil


In a fry pan, put oil and caramelize sugar over low heat until it turns light brown. Put pork cubes and pan fry until meat turns brownish. Set aside. In a casserole, put a little oil and sauté the garlic. Put the pork cubes and soy sauce. Bring to a boil. Add laurel leaf, pepper and water. Simmer until meat is tender. Add the potatoes and vinegar. Simmer for another 10 minutes or until potatoes are done. Add salt to taste (may be omitted since soy sauce itself is already salty).



  1. Hi Wanda,
    Did you have water on it when you boiled it? how much cooking oil is needed to caramelize the brown sugar? How much water should i add?
    Im gonna try this on thanksgiving day.

  2. dito lang pala ako makakaita ng recipe ng adobo… hehehe…

  3. hi mike, yes you have to put the water at the same time you put the spices. Tancha mo nalang un water base on the saltiness of your soy sauce. But normally I put the same amount of soy sauce vs water. Adjust to taste. Around 1-2 tbsp of oil should be ok, but it all depends on the type of pan you are using. I’m using non-stick pan kasi so less oil.

  4. oy, magluluto na rin si aries
