Mr. Wonderful and I love to try different foods. We were at a location that had a bunch of food truck and we found this one truck that had Adobo tacos. Adobo is a filipino dish that I grew up with. My mom cooked it all the time. I decided to try it, and it was amazing!! I love adobo and i love tacos. This was a brilliant combination. So, Mr. Wonderful and I decided to try to make it. It turned out so good!! We also tried entertaining with it and it was a hit. Here is our version of it. I hope you enjoy. This recipe makes at least 25 slider tacos (the smaller sized tortillas). Let me know what you think.
Update 9/23/13: We’ve previously used chicken thighs in the recipe, but we tried using chicken breast this past weekend. It turned out so dry. The texture was also unappealing. So, we’re going to stick to the thighs from now on.
2 lbs chicken thighs, chopped into 1/2 – 1 inch pieces
1/2 lb pork belly, chopped int 1/4″ pieces
2 large onions, sliced
1/2 cup Tamari (or soy sauce)
1/4 cup vinegar
1 teaspoon ground garlic
2 tablespoons sugar
Sriracha (optional as a side for heat)
In a large pot on medium heat, cook the chicken, pork, onions, tamari, vinegar, garlic and sugar for about 50-60 minutes. You want to cook it uncovered to evaporate most of the liquid. Don’t forget to stir it up occasionally. You don’t want it to burn on the bottom. When it’s done more than half of the liquid should have evaporated and will thicken slightly.
Serve over warmed corn tortillas with red cabbage, cilantro and lime. Add sriracha for heat.
