Adobo is the name of a popular Filipino dish that is cooked with chicken, meat or seafood, marinated in a sauce of vinegar and garlic, and then fried and simmered in the marinade. Usually they are using coconut, rice or cane vinegar, but you can try white or cider vinegar. The dish is so easy to prepare, the meat is very tender and flavorful. For this recipe you can cook just chicken or pork. Also, I added a bit of smoked bacon for flavor and aroma. Adobo can be cooked in a Crock-pot also, just cook the meat or chicken for 3 hours at a high temperature or 6 hours on low. Serve this dish with steamed rice.
