Pork Adobo Fried Rice
Just the thought of Adobo fried rice makes my mouth water...this is such a basic and much anticipated breakfast using leftover adobo from the night before.... chop up some adobo, fry up some eggs...add some of the sauce... cya! Feel free to add vegetables if you feel the need, but I like mine plain and simple...like me!

Pork Adobo Procedure
Wash, cut pork shoulder into serving cubes and place in deep bowl. Add soy sauce, onions, garlic, bay leaf and pepper. Marinate for around 30 minutes. Squeeze marinade out of meat. Set aside liquid.
In a heavy skillet or wok, heat oil until very hot. Saute marinated pork plus the onions, garlic and bay leaf in skillet. Allow to brown, stirring constantly.
Add vinegar and allow to boil for around 1 to 2 minutes. Lower heat to medium-high. Simmer uncovered until vinegar is reduced, around 10 minutes.
Add water and reserved marinade, lower heat to low, and cover. Simmer for around 35-40 minutes, or until pork is tender, and juice is reduced and natural grease from meat has seeped out.
