Adobong Sitaw

Adobong sitaw is the vegetable variation of the famous Filipino dish Adobo but instead of just using big chunks of pork and chicken, we use long beans or some call it string beans cooked with some pork pieces.  Another popular dish in the Philippines and its quick and easy to cook.

1 bunch string beans, sliced into 2 inch pieces
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup white vinegar
2 pcs bay leaves
1/2 small red onion, chopped
1 tsp salted black beans, chopped
freshly ground black pepper


1. In a pan, Add pork and stir fry until brown on all sides
2. Add the onions and garlic until garlic then sauté until golden brown.
3. Add the string beans and stir fry for 1 minute, then add the soy sauce, vinegar, pepper, black beans and bay leaves.
4. Cover the pan then simmer for 4 minutes.  Serve with rice.

  1. Adobo + sitaw is a great combo. My aunt used to make this with just a little pork fats to flavor a lot of sitaw. :) Your photo looks good and you can see the succulence of the pork. Excellent post, Raymund.

  5. This is great, I will have to try it. I already cooked chicken adobo for my (Filipina) wife and she said it was really nice (maybe being polite? haha). This is her next surprise.
