Grammie made the tastiest adobo. Everyone loves it.
They asked for it over and over again. It was always a welcome treat. The only questions left to answer we're when or pork or chicken? Hope you enjoy it as much as our family and friends do.
PS: The photos will be added as soon as possible. For some reason, I was not able to upload them to this recipe. I'll keep working on it, and post it as soon as I am able to.
