As we all know, Pork Adobo has been one of the favorite Filipino Recipes. Inadobo, which is the manner of cooking this dish, has been regarded as a traditional method of cooking meat and vegetables. This Pork Adobo Recipe is another unique version of the same dish that all of us love.
What make this dish stand out are not the eggs. I must admit that having boiled eggs with pork adobo is a good idea. However, the magnificent taste was actually derived from the additional ingredients which are the oyster sauce and dry sherry. These additional ingredients when combined with the traditional (vinegar and soy sauce) produces a great tasting dish.
