In the Philippines, Adobo is pretty popular. We usually do it with chicken and pork but this time, I tried it with a vegetable, Box Choy. Thus, this dish is called Bok Choy Adobo. It has the same style of cooking, only the main ingredient is different. I guess Adobo works for every type of protein!
To make Bok Choy Adobo appetizing, it’s a must to have crunchy garlic ready to top with the finished dish. The garlic elevates the look of the Bok Choy Adobo and it’ll make the diners want to dig in.
