Pork Adobo Recipe (with Carrots)

It’s been a while, a long while since I’ve cooked with pork. I mainly try to stick to a diet that’s 80% vegetarian and 20% fish or chicken (flexitarian), but once in a while I will crave meat.

And when that happens, I make sure to create a dish that’s going to be memorable.

This week I made this very simple pork adobo recipe to satisfy a craving I had for something sour and tangy – and boy did it hit the spot! Fantastic, best pork ever, unreal are a some of the words my husband used to describe the dish. He’s by far my favorite customer as I consistently get showered with compliments about my cooking, which we all know, is the best things a home cook can ask for.

What makes this particular pork adobo recipe different is the addition of carrots. I added loads of carrots to this pork adobo recipe because I wanted something that would soak up the amazing flavors of the sauce.

Carrots are a wonderful vehicle to carry strong flavors and create the perfect bite, and that’s exactly what they did for this dish. It was quite addictive!

My pork adobo was served with rice (Japanese rice – my favorite) and fresh slices of cucumber but you can eat it on top of pasta, with quinoa or just like that on its own. No matter how your serve it, your guests will love it!
