Chicken Adobo take two, Nana's recipe
Okay, so I called my Nana again and got the directions on how to make her adobo. This is how she does it:
1. Set aside pork or chicken (if large pieces chop up according to your desires) in a bowl with vinegar (not too much as my Nana says, but enough- you be the judge), water and paprika (again, you be the judge). Chop up onion (preferably yellow, but white will do), and garlic. Put chopped garlic and oil in skillet and cook til just browned, then add the chopped onion and cook til it wilts. Add 1 bay leaf.
2. Add chicken/pork in water, vinegar, paprika mix to the onion/garlic/bay leaf mixture and salt and pepper to your desire. Cook til it simmers down into a semi-thick sauce, serve with rice.
This batch came out good looking, but I added too much vinegar. (Hey, I'm still learning here!) Overall it was good though. YAY! I have my Nana's recipe down (almost!).
Here are some pictures!
Nice and orangey from the paprika (think I added a bit too much too, but hey!):
I LOVE this picture, you can see the steam rising from the bowl if you look close enough!
