Spicy Black Meat Tuna Adobo

pizap.com13440358559681 Spicy Black Meat Tuna Adobo

I discovered this menu when I was  still the one who cooked for my canteen.  This tuna black meat is a left over of export white tuna meat. In the market, people didn’t notice this.  I ask the “tindero” how and what is the best recipe for this black meat? He just replied “make it adobo.”

So, I tried this one for 2 kls,  cut into 2×2″ bite size.

I have lot of customers in my canteen.  Aside from walk-in bus, tricycle, jeepney drivers,  we cater daily lunch to various offices like banks, clinics, and private companies.

At first, when I placed it on our  display food case, they’re all curious and asked, “what’s this?” They were assuming it was beef. I only sell it for only P25.00 per serving (6cuts).

Every man’s weakness are spicy foods.  Since most of them are bisaya, my secret is I put more “sili”.  Every now and then this becomes the highly sold food menu in my kitchen. 2 kls is just like  a buy 1 take 1 hamburger that could easily wash out in just an hour or 3 after displaying it on the food case.

I will share with you how to cook this and its ingredients:

1kl. black meat tuna (cut 2×2) bite size
1 onion
3 cloves of garlic
2 cups vinegar
1 tsp whole black pepper
3 pcs laurel
2 tables spoon ginger (strip cut)
2 tsp soy sauce
brown sugar
magic sarap
red pepper (sili labuyo)


1st step:

wash the meat and drain. Place in the pan then mix the vinegar, garlic, onion, black pepper and laurel, ginger and salt.  Boil it for 10 minutes.

2nd step:

Saute the onion, garlic and ginger until it becomes mild brown in color then place the cooked black meat tuna together with the sauce then let it boil for another 15 minutes together with the soy sauce. Put all the remaining ingredients according to your taste and serve it with little decorations of your own.

Tips:  For canteens, “mura at masarap na,  malaki pa ang tubo”.
