    How to cook Pork Chop Adobo:

    • Put all ingredients in a pot except the water. Leave overnight in a refrigerator.
    • If the pot is too large, put all the ingredients in another container and leave in the refrigerator overnight, then transfer to the pot the following day.
    • Add a cup of water and cover the pot and boil the mixture for about 15 minutes, then lower the flame and allow it to cook slowly for about 2 hours keeping the pot covered.
    • Add water if necessary to avoid drying up the sauce.
    • Stir occasionally, about once every hour. Do not over stir.
    • The meat will slowly caramelize and turn into brown.
    • Cook until the pork chop is tender and the liquid has reduced into half.
