|EVERY FEW MINUTES|
1 1/2 lb. pork shoulder or butt cut in 1 1/2" cubes
1/3 c. vinegar (sugar cane vinegar best, but any will do)
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. salt
3 gloves garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 c. water
2 tbsp. cooking oil
Combine all ingredients, except cooking oil, in pot and let stand for 30 minutes. Then simmer, covered for one hour (or until meat is tender). Drain and keep sauce.
Heat cooking oil in skillet and brown meat on all sides. Place in serving dish. Pour off remaining cooking oil, add reserved sauce and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Be sure to scrape all browned bits sticking to pan (best part!). Pour sauce over meat and serve. Excellent with white rice.
Chicken or chicken/pork together often used.
Serves 4 to 6 people and takes only an hour or so to cook.
A classic basic dish. It doesn't get any more Filipino than this!
