  • This video will show you how to cook adobong baboy sa gata, otherwise known as Filipino pork adobo in coconut milk. This is a basic recipe. Feel free to improve this base recipe to come-up with your preferred version.

    I shot this video with a huge smile on my face. It has been winter here in Chicago for almost forever. Today the sun came-up and the temperature rose to the lower 60s. It was something to celebrate about, so I decided to walk to my neighborhood grocery store to buy some pork belly so that I can cook this dish.

    Pork Adobo sa Gata has these ingredients:

    2 lbs. pork belly, cut into cubes
    ¼ cup soy sauce
    ¼ cup white vinegar
    2 teaspoon whole peppercorn
    4 pieces dried bay leaves
    2 cups coconut cream
    2 tablespoons coconut cream
    Salt and pepper to taste

    The final result was awesome. The meat and fat were very tender. It was also rich and tasty. All I needed was a few cups of warm white rice. Yummy!

    Who shoots your video and who creates the recipes?

    I shoot all the videos myself and I write and develop my own recipes.

    What equipment do you use?

    I started the videos back in 2009 using a Pentax point and shoot camera. It is a priced possession because it helped me take this channel to where it is today.
