Among all the variations of Adobo, Adobong sitaw is one of my favourites! I grew up eating this tasty Filipino cuisine because my mom used to cook this always. I love the saltiness of adobo mixed with the sweet taste of sitaw with every bite. Cooking adobong sitaw is just the same as the other adobo dishes except that you have to use the sitaw as the main star of the dish with few pork strips. You can also replace pork strips with tofu, not only that it is healthier but also because it is very appropriate for the vegetarians.
It is very easy to cook! In less than 30 minutes, you’re ready for lunch!
1 bunch string beans (sitaw) cut in 2″ length
1/4 lbs pork, thinly sliced
5 cloves crushed garlic
1 medium sliced onion
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 cup water
Salt, pepper and sugar to taste
- Heat the pan with oil and fry pork until the juice comes out.
- Add and sauté garlic and onion in a pan for 2 minutes.

Happy eating! 🙂
