    I love adobo! I make this in the crockpot low 8 hours, it makes it so tender and tasty, then you can skip the oil. I also toss in a handful of whole peppercorns, it is so good! - 4/26/07

  • seems like it would have quite a bit of sodium with the soy and the salt. Might cut out the salt and use low sodium soy sauce.
    Sounds wonderful!
