Adobo Pork

I wish I could take full credit for this meal, but I can take credit for part of it. I had found a recipe for Adobo Pork Chops  that I wanted to try, but it just so happened that a similar dish was being served up at our local Publix, except that it was cubed pork. I didn't even know there was such a thing. Cubed steak, yes, but not pork. It was already pre-seasoned and breaded so it was simple and fast to make. We really liked this one!

However, the next time we went back, the pre-made stuff wasn't available so I went back to my original recipe to try and make my own. This really has a kick to it, but not a burn in your mouth kick. Just lots of flavor. Paired with the potato salad it really makes a yummy meal. We turned our noses up at the potato salad as well, but once we tried it we loved it.

Adobo Cubed Pork

1 pound Cubed Pork
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon hot chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
3 cloves garlic (minced)
3 tablespoons bread crumbs

Mix all dry ingredients together in a small bowl. Mix the oil and vinegar together and then dip the pork into it before rubbing on the dry mixture. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in skillet and place pork into pan.  Cook on both side until no longer pink.

Potato Salad (Publix recipe)
1 package New York style potato salad from Publix
1 green apple (granny smith)
sliced green olives (1/4 cup or more to your liking)

Mix together and serve cold.
