    One can never have enough adobo recipes in one’s repertoire. Adobo is not just a dish, but rather a cooking method that allows creativity in the chef’s selection of the vinegar (coconut, nipa, or sugarcane), coloring (soy sauce, achuete, or turmeric) or lack of it, and choice of finish (grilled, broiled, or fried).
