Pork & Broccoli Adobo

Here in Winnipeg, we’ve got a vibrant Filipino community and the food scene just keeps getting better. Filipino flavours are spectacular and I really believe the Filipino food movement is going to be “the next big thing.” Here’s a quick stir fry that doesn’t specifically use Filipino ingredients, but the adobo sauce brings that amazing sweet and sour flavour we’re looking for.

Time: 30 minutes

Serves: 6    


100g cane vinegar
60g soy sauce
20g fish sauce
40g agave nectar
450g ground pork
1 large onion – diced
3 cloves garlic – finely chopped or grated
3 five-spice powder
2g fresh ground black pepper
700g broccoli florets
450g mushrooms – sliced


Place a wok on high heat.

While the wok is heating, stir together the vinegar, soy sauce, fish sauce, and agave nectar.

When the wok is very hot, stir fry the pork, breaking apart until nearly cooked through.

Add the onion, garlic, five-spice and black pepper, stir frying for two minutes.

Add the broccoli, mushrooms and vinegar mixture. Stir fry for three minutes or until it is cooked to your liking.

Serve hot.
