fry first garlic, onion and ginger.
add gizzard.
stir occasionally for 5 mins.
add vinegar and soy sauce with constant stirring.
add water.
let simmer for 15mins or until gizzard is tender.
add liver, simmer for another 5mins.
season with peppercorn.
add bay leaf.
simmer for 3 mins.
then enjoy!

There are many ways to cook adobo, thanks for sharing your version.

yes, ut-man is right. adobo is cooked in so many ways. either the boiling method first or saute method. if there's anything wrong its "anonymous'" step :
add vinegar and soy sauce with constant stirring.
you need to wait until the vinegar is cooked before you stir your adobo. one mortal sin in cooking adobo is if you let " mahilaw yung suka".
