Adobong sitaw another mouth-watering Filipino dish. Originally, adobong sitaw is a combination of string beans and meat braised in soy sauce, vinegar, spices, and fat rendered from pork belly. As pork is unavailable here in our place, I have used the small size cooking shrimp as an alternative for pork . Packed cooking shrimp is the most convenient ingredient to use for sauteing vegetables as it is available in almost all of the supermarkets here. Below is a simple recipe you can adapt to ensure a delectable meal may it be for dinner or for lunch.
- 2 cups string beans; cut in 2″ lengths
- 1 cup cooking shrimp (or sliced pork)
- 1/2 cup of soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons of vinegar
