Adobo Recipe. Learn how to make Adobo with this Filipino Adobo Recipe. Adobo can be made with either chicken or pork, but Adobo is typically made with chicken. In some Adobo’s we’ve tasted, they included liver; add some healthy chicken liver if you like, but for those who don’t enjoy liver, feel free to leave it out.

    just for a more garlicky flavor.saute chopped garlic till golden brown.then add the meat for browning before turning it back in the caserole,it definitely adds more flavor but dont reboil or reheat,just cover it till ready to serve to preserve the toasted garlicky smell,try it folks….

    It’s sad that most Filipinos can’t cook adobo that well. In my opinion this adobo recipe would be tasty for those who have never tasted the original adobo recipe served in Filipino homes for ages. I think this recipe is similar to the recipes in fancy restaurants, which taste like crap.
