Introducing, Sarah’s Special Chicken and Pork Adobo with Basil
Now I know what you guys are thinking, basil for an adobo dish? Yup, that’s the secret ingredient behind this recipe. Laurel leaves may be the usual herb that we use but ever since I tried using basil, I just can’t get enough of it. I got the idea from a cousin who like me loves eating pesto and adobo. And like me, she’s not really into the “cooking stuff”. Anyway, she have me tried her adobo and wholla, I have since used that idea of combining basil into my adobo.
Half kilo of Chicken (cut into pieces)
Half kilo of Pork (cut in cubes)
Dried Basil (McCormick)
Half cup Vinegar
Half cup Soy Sauce
1 head Garlic, crushed
2 cups of Water
Marinate all the ingredients except for water (at least for an hour). Mix the marinated mixture with water, let it boil and simmer until chicken and pork is tender. Ready to serve!
