Chicken and Pork Adobo

Here is dish which was taught to me by my Filipina friend Margie. Likely my version is not as good as what she makes but it tasted fine for a first attempt.

Chicken and Pork Adobo
aprox. 250 ml rice vinegar (or cider vinegar)
aprox. 250 ml water
peeled and crushed garlic (lots of it, maybe 3-4-5 tablespoons)
5 pieces of bay leaves
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 package chicken (I used boneless chicken breasts cut Chinese style)
1 package lean pork ( a bit more than the chicken)
1 carrot thinly sliced
brown sugar to taste (I used quite allot)
soy sauce

Add oil, vinegar, water, garlic, salt, carrot, bay leaves and pepper into a large wok. Bring to a boil. Add the meat, cover and bring to a boil. Simmer and cook for about 30 minutes. Liberally cover with soy sauce (taste as you go) and cook for an additional 10 minutes (I boiled to reduce liquid to a minimum). Let sit.

Serve with rice.

I did this over rice and it was awesome. Next time I will try it over mashed potatoes… This is a really great taste treat. Easy and quick. All of you that want a quick easy meal at home - try this!
