Pork Adobo: The House of JCJEE Version

Saturday is our Market Day. And when we went to market last Saturday, I bought 50 pieces of quail eggs. It was not included on the list of things we will buy but I felt the craving for quail eggs. Moreover, I also realized that it has been a couple of months ago since we last served a dish with quail eggs on the table. We are supposed to have the regular pork adobo when an idea suddenly popped out of my mind and suggested my husband to add hard-boiled quail eggs to our usual Pork Adobo to give the dish a twist. 

Adobo is a famous Filipino dish. Ask a foreigner who has gone to the Philippines and was served adobo, they will say that it is really tasty and flavorful. Because of the Filipinos' creativity and ingenuity, Adobo now has different versions. The most popular versions of the Filipino Adobo are Pork Adobo, Chicken Adobo, or the combination of both Chicken-Pork Adobo. Some vegetables, such as kangkong (water spinach) and sitaw (string beans), as well as seafood like squid and mussels can also cooked and prepared the same way.
