I Made this dish on thursday served it with a wild rice mix and green beans. The next night it was even better, I made sandwich's with provalone cheese, fresh spinach and tomatoe, oh and sauted onions. It was so good, the meat was tender juicy and tasty. I will be repeating this recipe a lot. Pictured is the sandwich. The Adobo is pale and bland in color so it didn't picture well.
