Igado with Olives. I have been adding olives with some of the classic Pinoy dishes. I have it on my Pork Adobo with Olives and Special Pork Menudo with Olives. But it is not new I have been adding olives in to most of my Kaldereta Dishes . Today I am also doing Igado with Olives.
Aside from adding olives and olive oil to my Igado with Olives, I have also added some pineapple to balance the saltines. Basically cooking should be similar to our Igado recipes. Just add the olives during the final stages of cooking.
