Pork Adobo sa Gata


Adobo is one of the best Filipino viands of all time and even considered as the national dish. No one will get tired of eating the usual adobo, whether it is pork or chicken. But some of us want to try something different sometimes. And this time, Adobo is made richer with coconut milk. Coconut milk is called "gata" in the Philippines.

My husband works in Saudi Arabia. Everyone knows that eating pork in that country is strictly prohibited. So when his first vacation came, I was so excited to prepare different pork dishes. He was even more excited than me! He asked and requested specific dishes and Adobo was one of those. I surprised him with this one and he totally liked it. He even shared it to his friends and made it as their "pulutan" (Filipino term used to accompany with an alcoholic drink). All of his friends were thrilled and had nice reactions. 

INGREDIENTS:

1 kilo pork belly, cut into pieces
1 head garlic; pounded 
1 small onion; chopped 
4 dried bay leaves
1/2 tablespoon peppercorns
1/2 cup soy sauce 
1/4 cup vinegar 
1 cup water 
1/2 cup coconut milk
6 hard boiled eggs (optional), peeled
All in one seasoning granules (I always use Maggi Magic sarap. It really does make a huge difference!)
2tbsp sugar

COOKING PROCEDURES:

1. Prepare the marinade of garlic, pepper, soy sauce, vinegar, water and bay leaves.

2. In a large saucepan combine meat and marinade, cover and simmer over low heat until meat is tender.

3. Remove pork from the sauce. Set aside in two different bowls.

4. Heat up oil in a saucepan. Saute garlic and onion. Cook the pork chunks for about 3-5 minutes.

5. Pour the marinade and coconut milk. Put the hard boiled eggs. Add all in one seasoning granules and sugar. Cover and simmer in low heat until sauce thickens.

Serve with rice and enjoy!
