      There was a time when our week would never be complete without my mom’s special Pork Adobo. Naturally, I was taught by my mom on how to cook our favorite meal.

      However, this specific recipe has been modified from my mother’s way of cooking which usually had a lot of sauce. This is specifically a result of a successful experiment to attain maximum flavor without having to marinate the meat. Great if you have the ingredients in your fridge and suddenly craved for Pork Adobo with Tofu!

      Here’s how to prepare before cooking:

      1. Chop the tofu (Firm) into cubes. Ready up for frying.
      2. Mince 4 cloves of garlic. You also have the option for crushed garlic.
      3. Chop your meat into cube sized pieces or adobo cut. Personally I prefer it to be twice the size of your tofu.
      4. Prepare all other listed ingredients.

      Steps

      1
      Done
      3 minutes

      On a separate Pan. Deep fry your tofu cubes for around 3 minutes or until golden. Then set aside.

      2
      Done
      1 minute

      On your main pan (I used a wok with cover) add some oil then preheat for 1 minute. Then add in some garlic until slightly golden.

      3
      Done
      5 minutes

      Add in your meat, then cook for around 5 minutes, all sides slightly seared.

      4
      Done
      1 minute

      Add Soy Sauce and Oyster Sauce. Mix for around 1 minute. Remember the meat has not been marinated, this step will allow the meat to absorb the flavors under heat.

      5
      Done
      30 minutes

      Add 2.5 cups of water, 1 tablespoon whole black pepper corn, and 3 pieces of bay leaf. Mix then cover for 30 minutes under LOW heat. I use 120 degrees celsius. Boiling under low heat would help tenderize your meat.

      6
      Done
      10 minutes

      After 30 minutes, add 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 tablespoon of vinegar. Mix then cover for another 10 minutes without adjusting the heat.

      7
      Done

      At this point, try tasting a piece of meat and the sauce.
      Meat should be be juicy and tender and the sauce should be savory with a bit sweetness. It is an option to add salt to taste.

      8
      Done
      10 minutes

      Add the Fried Tofu and mix well. Cover for another 10 minutes.

      9
      Done

      The dish should be ready to serve.
      Perfect with rice!

      I'm a self taught cook for my wife and daughter. Favorites are fried stuff and salads! I know it's two different sides of the coin haha.
