Adobo is a popular cooking process in Philippine cuisine that involves meat, seafood, or vegetables marinated in a sauce of vinegar, soy sauce and garlic, browned in oil, and simmered in the marinade.

It has sometimes been considered the unofficial national dish of the Philippines. Adodo has a very long shelf-life due to one of its primary ingredients, vinegar, which inhibits the growth of bacteria.
