Pork Adobo with Coca-Cola
This version of pork adobo is with a twist because it contains coca-cola. Which is, I think the most popular softdrink here in our country. And combining both a popular Filipino dish with a popular softdrink is I think will produce a dish that will also be listed as one of the favorite Pinoy dish. Actually whenever my wife cooks and serve adobo, there should always be a coke on the dining table. I don’t know why the adobo tasted so good whenever there is coke around. So why not combine the two? Aside from enhancing the flavor, coke also acts as a tenderizer so you don’t need to cook the meat for a long time. Both the meat and the fat will definitely taste better when cooked with coca-cola.
