Of course the spices (peppercorns, bay leaves) and other condiments is included and essential in cooking this dish. Adobong puti can be served with rice and is a one of the popular dish in the Philippines.
The cooking procedure is almost the same as the usual adobo but there is a additional process in cooking it. First, boil the meat in water with vinegar, garlic, peppercorns and bay leaves. Drain, reserve the liquid and fry the meat. Then return the broth to the meat and simmer until liquid is reduced to half. Although this adobong puti is not the same as the one served in Ibayo (by Barrio Fiesta), if you are craving to eat this dish, I guess it will not harm you to cook to satisfy your craving.
