  • 2 cups left-over Adobo meat (or more, if you have more) and its remaining sauce, if any
  • A little Oil, as needed
  • Salt and pepper, for extra seasoning, if desired (optional and may be unnecessary)


  • Flake or shred the left-over adobo meat as evenly as you can and as thin or thick as you prefer.
  • In a frying pan, place the shredded meat and all its remaining sauce. In low heat, fry the adobo meat, stirring frequently, until all the sauce has dried up. Set the meat on one side of the pan and brush the pan with a little oil (amount depends on how much-shredded adobo you have). Continue to fry and stir frequently over low heat, until the meat is fully dry, brown and crisp. Season to taste, if you prefer, but that is unnecessary. Serve immediately with rice and eggs for breakfast or as topping for salad or soup. Enjoy!
