You may have noticed that most of the ground meat dishes are cooked with tomato sauce. For today’s dish we go back to the basics, we try to cooked ground meat, adobo style. This is not new, but it is my first time to cook giniling, adobo style. For this adobo recipe I wanted it simple by just using vinegar and salt and have omitted soy sauce. I do however cooked my ground pork adobo with potatoes which is usually an indispensable ground meat partner in Pinoy cuisine. I have some canned quail egg lying in the pantry for some time now, which I have added to add character to the dish, not to mention that boiled egg goes well with adobo.
Here is the recipe of my Ground Pork Adobo with Quail Eggs.
1 kilo ground pork
1 can boiled quail eggs, drained
3 medium sized potato, skinned, cut into cubes
1 small onion, peeled, chopped
1 head garlic, peeled, crushed, chopped
2 tsp. crushed peppercorns
3-4 pieces bay leaf
1/2 cup vinegar
In a wok heat generous amount of oil and stir fry the potatoes for 3 to 5 minutes or until the edges start to turn brown. Remove from wok and keep aside. Using the same wok sauté the garlic and onion until fragrant, then add in the ground pork, crushed peppercorns and bay leaf and stir cook for about 3 to 5 minutes. Add in the vinegar and about 1 to 1 1/2 cup of water let cook for about 2 to 3 minutes without stirring. Season with salt to taste.
