Philippine Pork Adobo -Crockpot

Susie D.


I was new to Filipino Adobo and tried this easy version. The vinegar & soy taste are entirely different than south of the border adobo. I used meaty country style pork ribs - NOT baby back ribs. Bone in pork shoulder or even a sliced pork butt work work well.

How to Make Philippine Pork Adobo -Crockpot


  1. Line crockpot with liner bag or lightly spray with cooking spray. Place slices of onions in bottom of crockpot. I do this to help prevent the meat from sticking to the liner.
  2. Lightly season both sides of the pork with salt and ground pepper. Place on top of onions.
  3. Spread the garlic, peppercorns, bay leaves evenly over the pork. Pour in the soy sauce and vinegar.
  4. Cover and set on high. Check at approx 4 hours. The pork was very tender at that point without falling completely apart.
  5. Serve atop cooked rice. Garnish with green onions, cilantro. I also sprinkled with crushed red pepper flakes.
