Hawaiian Party Recipes

Traditional Hawaiian Pork

Another good Hawaiian party food idea is the extremely popular Adobo. This dish originated in the Philippines but has since been adopted by Hawaiians. To make Adobo you are going to need:

½ a yellow onion diced
1 Head of garlic (yes, the whole head of garlic) minced
2 pounds of pork of your choice cut into1 inch squares
1 cup of vinegar
2 cups of water
½ cup of Balsamic vinegar
¼ cup of soy sauce
1 teaspoon of paprika
olive oil
2 tablespoons of cornstarch
2 tablespoons of water
Add a little olive oil to a pot and brown the onions and garlic. Add the water and vinegar to the onions and garlic and bring to a simmer. Add the pork and Balsamic vinegar and continue to simmer for 10 minuets. Add the soy sauce and simmer for another 10 minuets. Remove the meat from the sauce and brown it in a separate pan with the paprika. Mix the 2 tablespoons of water with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to make a slurry and thicken the sauce with it. Adobo is usually served with rice.
