Slow Cooker Pork Adobo

image

Here’s another one of my “go to” recipes when I want something that is simple and just plain good-  Filipino Adobo!

When it comes to Filipino Adobo everyone has their own recipes and versions.  This is MY version, it stays close to a traditional version- but this is my disclaimer.  (No one has really complained about that taste)

Here’s what you’re going to need:

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs pork cut into chunks (anything that has a little fat can be used)  I used thick pork chops.
  • 1 head garlic, chopped
  • 1 large green onion chopped
  • 1 tsp ground pepper (I used whole peppercorns)
  • 1 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 4-6 bay leaves
  • 1/4 cup light soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • salt & pepper
  • 1/2 tsp seasame oil
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 4 hard boiled eggs (optional)
  • seasame seeds

Note:  Since I only had two thick pork chops, this recipe was made by reducing all ingredients by 1/2.

Place pork, garlic, green onion, pepper, vinegar, water, bay leaves and soy sauce in your slow cooker and bring to a low simmer boil for 3-4 hours until it is easily pierced with a fork.  The last 30 minutes of cooking  you can add your hard boiled eggs to soak up the flavor, this is optional.

Once the pork is fork tender, remove from the slower cooker and add to a pan with olive oil and seasame oil. Quickly fry to braise, be careful to not dry out the pork.

While the pork is braising, strain the juice from the slow cooker to another pan and reduce by 1/2.

Once reduced, add cornstarch with water to thicken sauce and boil for 1 minute.  Add pork and coat with sauce.   Serve with rice, hard boiled eggs and garnish with seasame seeds.
