Adobong Pusit at Baboy, Squid and Pork Adobo

Adobong Pusit at Baboy, Squid and Pork Adobo. I first tasted this adobo squid and pork combination at a specialty restaurant at Resorts World in Manila right across NAI Terminal 3 and Nichols. Sine then, I just could not forget about it, it is a fusion of taste of my two favorite adobo, Adobong Baboy and Adobong Pusit. Cooking Adobong Pusit at Baboy, Squid and Pork Adobo is a bit tricky, cooking time of squid and pork are mile apart. Squid when overcooked tend to become rubbery and in contrast when undercooked the fishiness of a raw squid remains. To get away with a rubbery squid, it has to be slow cooked for a long time, but this cooking method makes the squids meat to be on the dry side and size reduced significantly.

To compensate for the different cooking times the squid was added at the final stages of cooking. It is also advice to use a larger size squid or the cut are larger, the squid shrinks significantly during cooking.

Here is the recipe of my version of Adobong Pusit at Baboy, Squid and Pork Adobo.


1/2 kilo medium size squid

1/2 kilo pork belly cut into large cubes

1 head garlic, peeled, crushed

1/2-3/4 cup vinegar

1/2 cup soy sauce

1 tsp. peppercorns

3-5 pieces bay leaf

1 stalk lemongrass, trimmed, crushed


cooking oil

Cooking procedure:

To clean the squid, partially pull out the head and the innards will come out with it. Remove and discard the ink sack and entrails. Remove the membrane from the body and wash out entrails. Final wash squid and drain. Keep aside. Put in pork first in a sauce pan, pour in 1/2 cup of water. Add in the lemongrass, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, peppercorns and bay leaf bring to a boil and simmer at medium heat for 20 to 25 minutes add more water if required. Add in the chicken and continue to simmer for 5 to 10 minutes or until almost all the liquid has evaporated and has turn to an oily sauce. Correct saltines if required. Serve with a lot of rice.
