Adobong Sitaw

Adobong Sitaw

Adobong sitaw is the vegetable variation of the famous Filipino dish Adobo but instead of just using big chunks of pork and chicken, we use long beans or some call it string beans cooked with some pork pieces.  Another popular dish in the Philippines and its quick and easy to cook.

    Adobong Sitaw is very Pinoy, Even if we remove the pork, it is still the best ulam kapag nagtitipid.

    Looks tasty! It’s interesting that you added bay leaf to the dish. What a lovely flavor combo!

  9. Adobo + sitaw is a great combo. My aunt used to make this with just a little pork fats to flavor a lot of sitaw. 🙂 Your photo looks good and you can see the succulence of the pork. Excellent post, Raymund.
