How do you make yours? I mean besides bacon! For New Year, I made kalua pork as one of my meats. Was good. But little monkey likes it different. Which was a surprise to me since she normally loves kalua pig. So today, I picked up a large pork butt to make pork adobo, an iconic Filipino dish. First up was to cube it up to marinate. Marinate was just minced garlic, chopped onions, some seasoning mix (salt & pepper will do), a bunch of peppercorns, a handful of dry bay leaves and soy sauce. I just filled a large ziplock and mixed it by squishing it around. I did cute out a steak to make my lunch. No one else wanted, so it was all mine. Just lightly seasoned and pan fried. Didn't want to fire up just for my lunch. It was cooked perfectly. And was tender, juicy and tasty. Wifee ended up eating some. I little monkey hadn't already eaten, I would have been out of luck. Lunch So after marinating for several hours and mixed once or twice, it was time to start dinner. Really easy. I just heated a large pot, dumped it all in and lightly browned the pork, and added some vinegar. Didn't know where the white vinegar was, so used rice vinegar. Just a note, rice vinegar is much mellower. Stirred and added water to cover the meat. Stirred again and let it simmer for an hour, hour and a half. I suppose I could have used fish sauce (an @Bear favorite ;p) instead of soy sauce. While it was simmering, made wild rice. Little monkey loved it. She had thirds! And was happy when I told her I would make it on an upcoming camping trip. It was very tender and flavorful. And the milder vinegar made it, well, milder. I like it stronger. But I think the kids at camp will like it milder, like monkey. I had two servings. Wifee liked it too. Big monkey is really particular with her food. But at least she tried it. So how do you pork?
