Filipino Pork Adobo (Instant Pot and Stove-Top Directions)
Filipino Pork or Chicken Adobo cooked in an Instant Pot, or stovetop, either way, delicious!
Servings: 4 people
- 2 lbs. pork
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 medium yellow onion (sliced)
- 5 cloves garlic (crushed)
- 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
- ½ cup lite soy sauce
- ½ cup white vinegar
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- ½ teaspoon ginger
- 2 bay leaf
Cut pork into large chunks and sprinkle with black pepper. If the chunks are too small, they'll completely fall apart in the Instant Pot.
Add oil to the Instant Pot, and choose the “saute” option. Once the oil is hot, add pork to Instant Pot. Sear in batches, and remove.
Saute onion and garlic, scraping the bottom of the pot. Mix the remaining ingredients together and pour them into the Instant Pot and deglaze the pot.
Return the meat to the pot, along with the onion and garlic. Seal Instant Pot and set the vent to “seal” position. Choose the “Pressure Cook” option: Adjust the time to 20 minutes.
After cooking for 20 minutes, allow an additional 10 minutes of resting time. Carefully adjust the vent to release the remaining pressure.
Note: To thicken the sauce further, choose “saute” and cook down the sauce.
Serve the pork adobo over white rice, along with some chopped scallions.
