My mom made this for me and my brother a lot when we were kids. But when we were little, we knew this dish as Beef Steak. I always thought it was a redundant name for the dish but what did I know, I was 8.

Adobo is the national dish of the Philippines, but with that being said every family has their own recipe for adobo. Even my version of adobo is different from my mom’s version. This is due to the fact that my mom almost never measures when she cooks. This makes things complicated when I want to make a dish that I had growing up. It has been shown that my memory isn’t reliable when it comes to remembering recipes. So I called my mom to get the recipe from her. Continue reading
