Pork Adobo Flakes

One of our breakfast go-to is the Pork Adobo Flakes with a heaping plate of fried rice and eggs sunnyside up.  Easy to prepare with only a handful of ingredients in less than an hour. This Filipino recipe can be for pork or chicken, and even a combination of both. There are so many versions out there: with pineapple juice, with boiled eggs, with coconut milk, and using other types of vinegars. For this recipe, the Worcestershire sauce and sugar gives it a slightly different flavor but still that sourly sweet taste remains that everyone loves. This can be omitted if you want the classic adobo recipe of garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, laurel leaves and peppercorn. We have the classic version using chicken in this recipe.

This is Filipino staple and definitely a family favorite! Make a big batch of adobo for dinner then serve them as flakes for breakfast the next day- easy, tasteful, and practical.
