Have you tried cooking one? I cooked this for our breakfast and I was really amazed how my mother cooked it better even if I did all the steps as she does. I put pineapple to make it sweeter. How about you? have you tried cooking this dish? What can you say about it?

I can do cooking. I do cook at home and for party . Adobo is a simple dish but a tasteful one. I can experiment the taste, I tried it sweeter for children, spicy for my parents and the original taste for party. Love...love...love to eat.

I Love to eat adobong manok, but I don't know how to cook. Adobong Manok is one of my personal favorites when it comes to Filipino cuisine.

I don't know what the menu you are talking about. But, daily in the morning I always cook for my family while my wife go to market to buy foodstuff to be cooked the next day. In holiday, we cook together special menu since we have spare time. Our menu is just Indonesian menu even we cook traditional Balinese food. We love to cook traditional Balinese food since that is tradition. My mother was teach me how to cook. Perhaps, our menu is just family receipts.

my mother is the best when it comes to adobo! oh,just remembered i was just finished eating her made CPA (chicken pork adobo) i haven't tried eating it with pineapple.but looks delicious! i have tried cooking for one time but it was just the chicken feet. it was okay but i really have to learn to make it more delicious. my mother really has this attitude of separating meat from soup then try cooking meat on it's own,it's like frying to make it more crunchy then after that she will combine together with the soup and cook again....

I so love this dish. Specially if use pork instead of chicken. This is yummier if after cooking you keep it in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, when you heat it up and taste it, the pork is tastier since it has already absorbed the sauce for longer hours. This is very easy to cook that is why when I feel lazy to think about what to cook, I just cook this dish.

I have tried cooking it, and it was a disaster! Hahahaha. After that, I never cooked it again. LOL. I do hope that one of these days I would get the courage again to cook Adobo. LOL.

I urge you to use Native Chicken in your "adobong manok" and add some pig meat ( wahehehe what's the term for "Karneng Baboy") dont forget to put hot chili.

I like adobo also. I have never tried to cook one but sooner or later I will definitely cook one someday. I like the most commonly cooked adobo pork, but I also like chicken, adobong sitaw and adobong atay or liver :D.

Indeed! Adobo is really one of our signature dish. This is one way how Adobo can be defined as an authentic Filipino dish and can be loved by many. I personally prepare and cook my delicious Chicken Adobo. Not only that, I also would try out Adobong okra and adobong sitaw . My Indian husband really like to eat Chicken Adobo that I cook, but I see to it that I have to add some chilly into it because as you know Indians really like spicy and with chillies. I also make a concoction just to add more flavor to my adobo like cinnamom bark, but not to much to empower the adobo taste. I also like to put pineapple tidbits but most of the time, I don't because I like my adobo dry with lots of garlic, less of vinegar but equal amount of soy.

I don't know how to cook Adobo but I love to eat it. My mom really don't want adobo so she doesn't put an effort in cooking one. She only make adobo when she's on a rush and needs to make us lunch or dinner fast.
