It’s a delicious remix to the dish that you can incorporate into your next breakfast.

Adobo is a classic Filipino dish, that is made with a wide variety of proteins marinated in soy sauce and vinegar. Whether you’re using chicken, pork, or seafood, you can follow this recipe to create a delightful side dish with your ulam. In this recipe, we use leftover juicy pork adobo.


To make our fried rice, start with day old rice and combine with a beaten egg, allowing each grain to become coated and golden. Scramble a couple extra eggs, fry up your leftover adobo with garlic, and set aside. Lastly, fry the rice, drizzle in Adobo to your heart’s desire, and add in the eggs and meat. Fold in some scallions as a garnish and your fried rice is served. Like it spicy? Try it with our spicy adobo, and top with some sriracha or chili garlic crisp. Fried rice is all about repurposing leftovers—feel free to add any other proteins and veggies into the mix, because adobo makes anything tasty. This fried rice is a perfect hearty meal for breakfast or lunch, best served outside with an ice cold beer!
