Chicken Liver and Gizzard Adobo Recipe

Adobo Recipe

Adobo is considered as The Philippine National dish. This popular Filipino dish is usually prepared using chicken or pork but lamb and seafoods can also be used. The most common version uses chicken or pork, some uses both. This recipe that I would like to share is made using chicken innards, cooked the Filipino way, and is best served with steamed white rice. The combination of soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, and peppercorns is delicious and actually preserves the gizzard and liver. I like my adobo dark, which is why I use soy sauce. But you can substitute salt for soy sauce if you want. You may also want to try adding chicken thigh in this recipe. This stew is very tasty and stays longer even without refrigeration. You can refrigerate or freeze it. This dish reheats well.

If you want you can use chicken and pork. Check this Chicken and Pork Adobo Recipe.
