Yes its all black! LOL "Black soy sauce" or at least that's what I call it is thicker and sweeter, usually with molasses added.

I have not tried those yet but have heard that they were good. I really like pearl river bridge soy sauce but I am always on the look out for some thing new.

Hmmm...we went to an Asian market and I grabbed some black vinegar...wish I'd seen black soy sauce. Also got several bottles of other things I have no idea what to do with, lol.

This looks wonderful, thank you! I am on a Things I Have Never Cooked kick and this will go on my list.

Thanks BB..
Tonight I wanted to add the amended recipe to the original I posted a couple of years ago. I love how a recipe can evolve and become better with time.

What's your plan for dinner tonight?


My report is Al Roker knows what he's talking about.

I eliminated the water in the above recipe I've used for years, and added a can of coconut milk along with some lemongrass. I added the fresh baby spinach to the mix just before I served it over Asian noodles(rather than rice) and topped with chopped green onions. Dang....

Adobo with coconut milk is normal depending upon which region you're in. Google images for Adobong Manok sa Gata recipe. You will see lots of recipes.

As to vinegar if you can find cane vinegar give that a try. I like making adobo with this one. https://www.asianfoodgrocer.com/asia...i-cane-vinegar

Thanks for the tips ppo. I've been using rice wine vinegar, can you tell me how the cane vinegar differs?
I don't normally use coconut milk for anything, but on a lark I picked up a can at Trader Joes and was very glad I had it on hand for this.
