Adobo is the Philippines national dish and a favorite with many people in the Islands. Adobo is not only a dish, but is also a subtle style of cooking. What most people think of when they hear the word "adobo" is a stew with the basic elements of chicken and pork in a sauce of white vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, and peppercorns. The variations are endless and whether served dry or moist, whole or shredded, the subtle sourness that makes the dish unique is always present.
