This version of Adobong Baboy with Boiled Egg has a milder taste compared to the other pork adobo recipes that we have featured. However (and just like all the different adobo versions that we have), this recipe will give you a delicious adobo dish that is worthy to be paired with the warm rice sitting in your rice cooker.
This pork adobo version requires the meat to be marinated in soy sauce for an hour. It will let the meat absorb the flavor of the soy sauce. Note that I am using light or low sodium soy sauce for this recipe. It might sound ironic for the salt to be still in the ingredient list, but I had it as an optional ingredient. Only use salt if necessary.
On another note, this recipe can be made Paleo diet compliant by removing the sugar and using coconut aminos instead of soy sauce. Coconut oil or lard can be used as a substitute for regular cooking oil — the only drawback will be to not have this with rice.
