I have a lot of Filipino friends, and I am half Thai, so I am used to Asian dishes. One of my favorite authentic Filipino dishes is Chicken or Pork Adobo, so I was thrilled to see a recipe that was really easy to make( 5 Stars for Easiness) The downside is that I stayed home today while it was cooking and I couldn't stand the smell. It was pungent...The best description I can think of would be a jar of pickles cooking all day on the stovetop. My 5 year old would not stop complaining about it. I thought the recipe had TOO MUCH VINEGAR. I didn't take those other "sour" complaints seriously, and I wished I would of listened. Even though I went easy on the vinegar, added extra water and sugar,the dish was still very sour and overpowering. Start off with 1/8 cup vinegar or less if you aren't used to Chicken Adobo. Then add more later to taste. That way your dish won't go to waste...like mine.
