Adobong Okra

Adobong Okra
Adobong Okra. Okra is one of the Pinoy vegetable that I have noticed that are regularly available here in Darwin both in the supermarkets and produced Sunday and Saturday markets around town. The okra quality is very inviting I was tempted to purchase some without thinking what to cook out of it. Well I did not have trouble what to cook, I decided, why not try adobo using the dark soy sauce that I have recently bought from the Asian section of Woolworth Supermarket.
