It is said that all Filipinos have their own recipes that are all very different but are all called by the same name. For example: Adobo is Adobo as long as soy sauce and vinegar or calamansi are the main seasonings. All other ingredients are optional and variable. There are no measuring system. Add in as much or as little as you want of an ingredient as long as it turns out the right texture and is delicious! Another senior couple sister gave me this recipe:
Garlic Onion Potato Vinegar/ Calamansi juice (2 Tbsp)
Soy Sauce Oil Surgar (2 Tblsp) Pork / Chicken (sliced)
1 Sauté garlic, onion & potato in oil
2 Add Pork/ Chicken until tender
3 Add vinegar / Calamansi juice, soy sauce & sugar.. wait.. until cooked (Calamansi is a small citrus fruit that looks like a lime, but doesn't taste like one)
my answer "Yes!" I thought it was great!!
Now you see why I needed some guidance in making this recipe? Elder Alcibor told me that I passed and for my first time it was really good. Yeah!!
