Adobo is the Filipino national dish, and a favorite among the people of Hawaii. Usually it is made with chicken and/or pork. Here is my adaptation of adobo, using seitan (or wheat meat). I also used a slow-cooker for my own convenience. (All of the recipes I found called for meat to be marinated for several hours then cooked on the stove.)
- 2 lbs. seitan (can be bought at most supermarkets, though I make my own)
- 1/2 c. rice vinegar
- 1/2 c. soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
- 2 tsp. brown sugar
- 6 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
- cut/rip seitan into bite-size pieces
- whisk together all other ingredients
- combine all ingredients in 4 qt. slow cooker
- cook on low for 6 hours, stirring occasionally
Enjoy your vegetarian luau.
