Bohol Adobo?

Bohol Adobo
Bohol Adobo? During our recent foodtrip in Bohol I get interested on the Bohol Adobo on the Menu of Kan-anan Restaurant of Dumaluan Beach Resort. We planned for a seafood dinner that evening but I ordered a serving of Bohol Adobo out of curiosity and for the purpose trying to dissect it and perhaps recreate the dish and add the recipe on my adobo recipe collection.

Bohol Adobo of Dumaluan Beach Resort

The Bohol Adobo of Dumaluan Beach Resort is made up of big cubes of pork belly with bright red in color and with an oily sauce with black beans and bay leaf. It is sweet but not too sweet and the saltiness came from the black bean, tausi and hardly less soy sauce was used. I have not tasted any hint of star anise and there are no banana blossoms, the usual ingredients for traditional humba.

Bohol Adobo - Cooking Procedure

In a thick sauce pan put all ingredients except the tausi, add enough water to cover meat and bring to a boil. Set heat to medium low and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until pork belly are tender. Remove all scum that rises, add more water if necessary. When pork skin turns to gelatine like texture add in the tausi. Correct saltiness and sweetness according to taste, set heat to low and continue to simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated, the pork start to render fat until an oily red sauce remain, stirring occasionally to avoid burning the. Serve with a lot of rice.
