Adobong Kangkong

adobong kangkong Adobong Kangkong

When I saw this post from Ray @ Wok With Ray, I was stunned as I never saw an Adobong Kangkong dish beautifully presented like those. After reading that post comes the drooling then next is the hunger as I haven’t made this simple yet wonderful dish for ages.

I was inspired and wanted to make one at home and the recipe below was adapted from Ray’s creation but before we begin let me explain to you what this dish is all about. Adobong Kangkong is a dish made out of Kangkong (Water Spinach) prepared the adobo way. Adobo in Tagalog is a cooking technique where meats and vegetables are cooked and simmered in a soy sauce and vinegar, common meats used are chicken and pork but there are several variations where beef and lamb was used. Vegetables are also used like this post and string/long beans.

A really flavourful dish and the best way to enjoy this is with heaps of rice, so without further ado here is the recipe.


400g pork belly, sliced into small cubes
1 bunch kangkong (water spinach), cut into 2 inch long pieces
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 pc bay leaf
6 cloves garlic
2 tbsp crispy fried garlic
freshly ground black pepper


1. Season pork with salt then set aside for 15 minutes.
2. In a wok add oil then cook pork pieces until brown on all sides.
3. Add garlic then sauté until very fragrant.
4. Add water, sauce, vinegar and bay leaf, bring to a boil then simmer for 30 minutes.
5. Add kangkong and simmer for 2 more minutes.
6. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
7. Serve topped with crispy fried garlic.
