Adobo is the national dish of the Philippines and means “marinade” in Tagalog, the Filipino language. Typically made by slowly braising chicken or pork in a vinegar, soy sauce, and garlic mixture, we switched things up by quickly stir-frying beef and vegetables. To amplify the sweet-and-sour flavor of the sauce, we used black vinegar, an aged Chinese vinegar with a hint of sweetness.
