Martha Stewart is back in the Philippines’ news headlines after the lifestyle guru posted an Instagram photo of her Filipino-style adobo dish.
Stewart’s social media post on October 7 featured the Philippines’ closest thing to a “national dish” that has been adored by chefs such as Gordon Ramsay as well as celebrity NBA stars and K-pop idols.
Good News Pilipinas took a look at Martha Stewart’s website and found many more ways Martha Stewart has been loving the adobo. Here are a few of our favorites:
1. Vinegar-and-Garlic-Braised Chicken
A Filipino-inspired braise similar to adobo with the potent combination of vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and garlic that acts as both marinade and simmer sauce. Once the chicken is tender and the sauce reduces to a glossy consistency, it takes on a sweet and sour flavor that is delightful drizzled over a bowl of Coconut Rice and steamed baby bok choy.
This adobo recipe is found in Martha Stewart Living, September 2019.
2. Instant Pot Chicken Adobo and Rice
Adobo is the national dish of the Philippines. Of course the Instant Pot is not part of the traditional method of preparing adobo but it makes the vinegar-braised recipe so simple. Chicken thighs are transformed into a flavorful one-pot dinner that’s sweet, sour, and a tad salty.
3. Adobo Peanuts
The earthiness of roasted peanuts is an unexpectedly perfect match for smoky adobo sauce. The flavor intensifies as the nuts bake. The recipe is also found in Martha Stewart Living, June 2011.
Martha Stewart visited the Philippines in August and had praises for Filipinos’ hospitality, Manila’s inspiring travel spots, made her dream of planting rice come true in Pampanga, and adored shopping in Metro Manila.
