Pork Adobo sa Gata

Pork Adobo in Coconut Milk
Here's one Filipino dish I experimented on. Well, I thought it's something new, but it's not, because just yesterday, I saw this particular viand in a menu from a local restaurant. This dish is easy to prepare. It's just basic pork adobo with coconut milk or coconut creme.
  • 5-6 pcs. pork adobo cut
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk or coconut creme
  • 3 bay leaf
  • 5 cloves garlic crushed
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup soysauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 green chilli chopped into pieces
  • a dash of salt and black pepper
How To:
  • In a sauce pan mix pork adobo cutlets in water, soy sauce, crushed garlic, bay leaf, salt and pepper.
  • Boil pork until tender. Drain, set aside Adobo sauce.
  • In a pan, heat olive oil and fry minced garlic until light brown. Set aside.
  • In the same frying pan, stir fry drained pork cutlets. Stir for a few minutes and pour about 5-6 tbsp of Adobo sauce. Set aside in a serving bowl.
  • Using the very same frying pan, stir fry green chilli for a few seconds.
  • Add Coconut Milk and simmer for a minute or 2.
  • Add remaining Adobo sauce and simmer again for a minute or 2 or until sauce is thick.
  • Pour prepared Adobo sauce with coconut milk in the serving bowl with the pork cutlets.
  • Add and garnish fried minced garlic.
Servings: 4-5
