Pork Adobo with Tokwa and Tausi and Garlic Fried Rice Adobo makes a perfect brunch meal for me. It is a simple meal combination that can easily be cooked in your own kitchen. You can also package the meal and bring it with you for lunch in school or at work.
How to Cook Pork Adobo with Tokwa and Tausi
This is an easy pork adobo version. Imagine this as your basic pork adobo with bells and whistles.
First, prepare the toasted garlic. This ingredient will be used to cook pork adobo and the fried rice. Heat half of the oil that cooked the garlic. I referred to the oil in the recipe below as garlic oil.
Add pork and cook while stirring until the outer part turns light brown. Pour soy sauce and vinegar and add water. Let boil. Add salted black beans, whole peppercorn, and bay leaves. Cook the meat by boiling in low to medium heat for 40 minutes or until tender.
I added the fried tofu last, along with sugar. This cooks for 3 to 5 minutes.
How to Cook Garlic Fried Rice Adobo
The fried rice is the simplest to make. It is the same as cooking sinangag na kanin. You just need to add some adobo sauce in this version to give it more flavor.
Start by combining salt and rice. Gently mix until well blended. Start to cook the rice by heating remaining oil and toasted garlic. Add the rice and stir-fry for 1 minute. Pour adobo sauce, which is the sauce from the pork adobo. Continue to stir-fry for 3 to 5 minutes.
Try this delicious adobo meal. Enjoy!
