Cooking with Titil: Pork Pata Adobado

Cooking with Titil: Pork Pata Adobado

I was on my way home when I remembered that I have to cook dinner for my family. I haven't had the faintest idea what to cook since I was very busy at work the whole day. So I stopped by a small deli shop in Divisoria to buy some meat and prayed that a recipe would pop out from my mind later on. Luckily, the cashier handed me a recipe...Pork Pata Adobado. It looks yummy and very simple to do since it is actually just a combination of HUMBA and ADOBO. So I bought the ingredients and went home with a sigh of relief. It is indeed very easy and a delightful recipe you can share with your family. As the saying goes "Sabaw pa lang, Ulam na!".

      1/3 cup vinegar
