Pork Adobo sa Gata {Pork Adobo with Coconut Milk}

Pork Adobo sa Gata

Liam MacIntyre  a.k.a Spartacus had me sleeping at 2am on a Saturday….

So most of my Sunday morning today, I spent fantasizing about spending the whole day in bed — with the a/c turned on and wrapped with the fluffiest and warmest blanket I have.

However, real life gave me shove —  I got a shop to run, a four year old who wants to eat a spoonful of peanutbutter for breakfast {No!} and a full laundry basket which has been waiting for me all week. Dang!

Hey, don’t give me that look… I did everything I’m supposed to do…. including making the best of my Sunday..

…a beautiful and delicious dish.

This is the kind of dish that makes a Sunday….

the kind of dish that makes everybody sit down on  the dining table and eat…….a lot.

…eat a whole lot than what they would normally eat on a daily basis….

this is the kind of dish that makes you eat a full meal including a dense chocolate and caramel cake  for dessert…

this is the kind of dish that makes you want to take siesta time up a notch….

Obviously the kind of dish that you want to have a photo taken with and if it could sign, I’m sure you’d have it’s autograph….

Just take a look at this nosey little girl who insisted on a picture taken with today’s lunch…

Yup, she was holding a sword. And no, I don’t let her watch Spartacus.

  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp cooking oil
  • 8 cloves garlic, chopped

Instructions

  6. Add chili and simmer until tender.

  5. Your right no one can resists such lunch. Especially if it’s presented that well. Complete with platting and all. No wonder that girl is so happy. 🙂 It feels like she’s eating in a resto with that kind of presentation. I love adobo so much and bet yours is divine. 🙂

  6. I love Adobo din but I haven’t tried Adobo in coconut milk pa.  I am looking forward to try it one of these days.

  7.  Dishes like this one makes me miss eating pork. 🙁 If I can eat this, I’d sprinkle it with a lot of chili flakes!
