A follow-up to a previous post - Pork Adobo

The last time I made pork adobo, it was nasty dry. The recipe is from a Hawaiian cook book (Taste of Aloha) and is called Pork Chop Adobo.

This time, I drained (reserving the marinade after marinating the meat overnight), then cubed the pork and stir fried it quickly. Then I took it out and stir fried a mess of veggies, then reintroduced the meat and then added some of the sauce back, thickened it slightly with corn starch and *wow* – mo’ betta! I served it with fried rice and a red blend called Three Popes. It was very good.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my last cry for help. I really appreciated all the suggestions and you gave me the confidence to think outside the box on this one.

without any relation to your post...I love your pig icon so cute <3

btw, if you are trying to cook adobo, try putting coconut milk along with soy sauce, vinegar, crushed garlic and strips of basil leaves or also try this one, if you could find something like this one:

Thanks! Feel free to steal it!

That's a great suggestion - thanks! I will check out our local Spanish market. I'm sure there is something like that packaged mix.
