I had a really hard time getting this shot 'cause I don't like to use my flash when I take food pictures. But it was already late in the day when I made my dinner plate, and took my first bite of this awesomest-ever pork adobo. I knew right then that hungry as I was, I would have to stop eating and somehow get a picture of it to post here. So here it is . . . hand held at 1/30 . . . it's the best I could do.
The recipe is from What Hawaii Likes to Eat by Muriel Miura and Betty Shimabukuro. Wendell might have overcooked the adobo a bit, but if that's so, then maybe you should overcook yours too 'cause it was outta this world ono.
2 pounds pork butt, cubed
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 tbs minced garlic
1/3 cup cider vinegar
4 bay leaves, crumbled
Combine all ingredients and marinate pork overnight in refrigerator. Place everything in a skillet; cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until pork is browned and tender, and all the liquid in the pan has been absorbed, about 30 to 45 minutes.
