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.
Download episode 2 of ‘In My Belly.’ Goes nicely with white wine. Maybe a vodka tonic.
I had no idea camping could be a culinary adventure. Our friends opened our eyes and mouths to the pleasures of bacon, pancakes and good food at the campsite in Scotts Valley.
Last June, Catalina made reservations at the Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. We packed everything into our little Corolla, survived the twists and turns on Highway 17 and spent the night under the stars. In my next episode of ‘In My Belly’ – we cover all yummy options for tent-side eating.
