Adobong Sitaw (String Bean Adobo) Recipe

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.
