I’ve included recipes here that are “Not Necessarily Filipino” – because Pinoys are foodies and love to eat pretty much everything! 😉
Unless otherwise stated, recipes are my own adaptations based on our family’s preferences – feel free to tweak to your own liking.
Kain na! (Let’s eat!)
A good recipe for introducing adobo to kids. The addition of water dilutes the flavor and can be lessened in time as this dish becomes familiar and liked. Frying the meat is the last step in most adobo recipes – omitted in this recipe, which I find very helpful at dinner rush hour!
If allowed to simmer for a long time, the beef melts in your mouth and the sauce becomes even more flavorful. I served this in the crockpot at a party once and our non-Filipino guests gobbled it up, asking for the recipe in between mouthfuls. 🙂
Try substituting almond butter to make this dish Paleo friendly – I have never tried doing that myself but hope to soon!
I have fond memories of Tropical Hut cheeseburgers back home – fast food burgers here taste so bland in comparison. This recipe reminds me a bit of that back-home burger taste. (Can be made Paleo by using coconut oil and omitting cheese.)
