RODRIGO'S ROAST: Adobo Dish Recipe Fit for a President by the Adobo Queen!

The simplicity of Adobo makes it so versatile and adds room for creativity in preparation. TV Personality and self-proclaimed Adobo Queen, Nancy Reyes-Lumen, demonstrates Rodrigo’s Roast—just in time for our president-elect, Rodrigo Duterte.



Rodrigo’s Roast is made of rolled pork belly braised Adobo style and seared with brown sugar—eggs are added for that extra protein kick.

As a recipe by renowned cook, Enriqueta David-Perez, this dish was inspired by her father who used to make an Adobo-like roast in the Monastery.

(Note: Fatty pork shoulder was used in this recipe. Fat adds flavor and prevents the meat from drying out. )

Here’s how to make it yourself…
