Adobong Pusit at Baboy, Squid and Pork Adobo
Adobong Pusit at Baboy, Squid and Pork Adobo. I first tasted this adobo squid and pork combination at a specialty restaurant at Resorts World in Manila right across NAI Terminal 3 and Nichols. Sine then, I just could not forget about it, it is a fusion of taste of my two favorite adobo, Adobong Baboy and Adobong Pusit. Cooking Adobong Pusit at Baboy, Squid and Pork Adobo is a bit tricky, cooking time of squid and pork are mile apart. Squid when overcooked tend to become rubbery and in contrast when undercooked the fishiness of a raw squid remains. To get away with a rubbery squid, it has to be slow cooked for a long time, but this cooking method makes the squids meat to be on the dry side and size reduced significantly.

To compensate for the different cooking times the squid was added at the final stages of cooking. It is also advice to use a larger size squid or the cut are larger, the squid shrinks significantly during cooking.

  1. Hi, I was reading this recipe when do you put the pusit.
    Is it after you finish the 30 minutes cook time of the pork
    or do you put the pusit half way of the 30 mins.

  2. Put the pusit after the pork is cooked, thanks rectified the error.
