Pork sauteed in garlic, mixed with soy sauce, vinegar, pepper, and a little bit of sugar would give you an excellent dish…the authentic Filipino pork adobo.



2 pounds of pork belly (cut into bite-size pieces)

2 tablespoons garlic (minced)

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/2 cup soy sauce

4 tablespoons vinegar

2 cups of water

5 pieces of dried bay leaves

salt and sugar to taste


  1. In a large skillet, heat oil and add pork pieces. Cook until brown.
  2. Add garlic and saute for about 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Add soy sauce, vinegar, water, bay leaf, and pepper.
  4. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Let it simmer for about 45 minutes or until meat is tender. Make sure not to let it dry out. Add more water if needed.
  5. Stir in sugar.
  6. Serve with steamed rice.


You can actually eliminate the oil in this recipe. Take note that pork produces its own oil. You can utilize that to saute it. If there is too much grease, you can get rid of some of it.
