Recipes | Adobong Sitaw With a Twist

Adobong Sitaw with a twist

During my "jobless" days last few months ago, I only stayed at home. And since I'm staying home, I cooked my own food, of course. I'm a veggie lover so I always try to have some veggies every meal. One time, I'm supposed to cook adobong sitaw for my lunch, together with fried fish. However, I found out I ran out of vinegar...again! Instead of fretting, I looked at the cupboard for something to add to my sauteed string beans. And then I saw a bottle of rice wine. I checked out the label and it said it can be used with meat or veggies so I experimented on my sauteed veggie and added the rice wine. You know what I found out? It's better than the usual adobong sitaw. I still called this dish adobo though actually, I didn't use vinegar, which is one of the main ingredients of adobo. Anyway, you may want to try it, too. Here's the recipe:


200 grams string beans, cut into 2 inches
100 grams ground pork
1 onion, sliced
5 cloves of garlic, crushed
6-8 tbsp soy sauce (I used kikkoman), depending on your taste 
1 tbsp rice wine
ground black pepper
cooking oil

How to cook:

  1. Sautée the ground pork until golden brown.
  2. Add the garlic and onion and sautée until the onion becomes transparent.
  3. Add the string beans and sautée for another minute or two.
  4. Add the soy sauce, rice wine, ground pepper, and water. Cover and let simmer for about 5 minutes.

That's it, adobong sitaw with a twist. Enjoy! ^_^
