Adobong Sitaw with Pork Belly

Adobong Sitaw

Sa totoo lang, ang gusto ko talaga sa ADOBONG SITAW ay yung labog na labog ang sitaw. But because I am sharing it with you, I thought it should look nice in the photo so I tried a different method in cooking.

Adobong Sitaw is one of my favorite viands in the whole world. It’s snake beans cooked in soy sauce and vinegar — adobo style. I added pork belly to make it more flavorful. But if you are vegan or is trying to be healthy, you can use tofu or chicken instead.


Adobong Sitaw

To cook this Adobong Sitaw, I fried the pork belly first before sautéeing it in garlic. Then I added the soy sauce, water, sugar, bay leaf, and vinegar. Mixed it well and simmered it for about 20 minutes until the pork belly becomes tender. Then I added the sitaw and cooked it for about 10 minutes.

Next time I’ll also blog about how I cook it to make it “labog”. LELz.
