Pork and Pineapple Adobo

Pork and Pineapple Adobo

Ingredients: (serves 6)

  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks
  • 1kg pork, cut into 2cm chunks
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 brown onion, peeled and sliced
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • 2 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp whole black peppercorns
  • Steamed greens and rice to serve.



  1. Heat a non-stick large pan over high heat and add oil. Add the pineapple chunks and fry until the outside is caramelised in parts, about 2 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  2. Cook pork in batches until well browned, about 3 minutes for each batch, and remove from the pan.
  3. Add the remaining oil and fry the garlic and onion for a few minutes.
  4. Return the pork to the pot and add the soy sauces, vinegar, pineapple juice, bay leaves and peppercorns. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 45 minutes, until the pork is tender when tested with a fork.
  5. Stir through the pineapple chunks and remove from the heat. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before serving with steamed greens and rice.
