  • 1/2 kg pork shoulder or loin cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup cane vinegar or apple cider
  • 3 pieces to 4 dried bay leaves
  • 1 Tbsp whole peppercorn
  • 4 cloves to 5 garlic crushed
  • Olive oil for sautéing
  • *****************************************************************
  • 3 medium sized potatoes (peeled or unpeeled as desired)
  • Salt
  • 1 Tbsp to 2 of unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup to 1 of non-fat skim or low-fat milk


  • For the adobo:
  • Heat the oil in a pan. Sauté the garlic then add the pork. Brown the pork in all sides.
  • Add the peppercorn and pineapple juice. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until pork is tender and until sauce is reduced.
  • Pour in the vinegar, soy sauce and bay leaves. Cover and simmer for another 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Turn the pork to the other side to get coated by the sauce. Wait until the sauce thickens and reduces before.
  • Turn off the heat and serve.
  • For the mashed potato (Julie's recipe)
  • Boil the potatoes with some salt.
  • Test for tenderness using a fork.
  • When tender for mashing, remove from heat and start mashing using a fork or masher.
  • Add some butter.
  • Keep mashing and gradually add milk until desired creaminess is achieved.
