Healthy Option - Sitaw Adobo Recipe

Adobo is a famous Filipino dish, which can be done with chicken, pork, fish or vegetables.

Adobong Sitaw is a healthy option for Adobo recipe since the primary ingredient is vegetable. Sitaw is the Tagalog term for string beans. If you prefer to add some meat to it, like bite-size chicken breasts or strips of pork, you may do so, but it's already delicious on its own.

This dish is super easy and fast to prepare. When cooked, serve this dish with steamed rice and fried fish of your choice.

Here's the recipe for Adobong Sitaw.

  • 1 bundle of Sitaw (string beans), washed and cut into 3 inches long
  • 1 medium onion, sliced

  • 4 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. vinegar
  • black pepper (powder or coarsely ground)
  • vegetable oil

    Cooking Instructions:
    Heat oil in a pan. Sauté garlic until light brown, follow with the onion until translucent. Sauté string beans for 2 to 3 minutes. Add soy sauce and mix well before adding vinegar. Let it simmer while stirring occasionally. Add black pepper just before the string beans get cooked.

    Preparation and Cooking Time: 15 minutes

    Boq and I like adding a pinch of chili flakes in every Adobo recipe to make it a little spicy. The chili flakes though complements the taste of meat Adobos more than vegetable Adobos.

    Bon Appetit!
