Adobe fried rice silog for lunch.
I had pork adobo chilling in the freezer after one of my parents’ visits.
Warmed everything up. Then I fried rice with sesame oil, greens onions and peas. Mixed adobo and rice in the wok. Added a fried egg with garlic salt. Runny egg yolk makes everything tasty!
Kain Na! NOM!
I found my new favorite recipe for adobo thanks to Top Chef winner Paul Qui.
I found his recipe in a Food and Wine article about his late-night eating habits. He always makes a yummy dinner for his fiancée, even if he comes home after midnight.
I love that he added bacon to his adobo dish.
Qui pairs his adobo with ginger rice. The sharp ginger flavor surprised and worried my hubby at the dinner table. After a few more bites, we agreed that the ginger flavors hit all the right notes with the chicken and bacon.
Mark also said he missed my family’s version of adobo chicken when the meat falls off the bone. So – I think I need to cook the chicken longer in Qui’s mix of white soy, fish sauce and chicken broth. The longer cooking time should make the chicken more tender.
Bottom line: a classy upgrade to my family’s comfort food.
