This is tasty to use as a rub for meat, poultry, and fish and also to season soup or rice dishes. I always save all of my empty glass spice jars and the ingredient amounts here fit perfectly in one.



Mix all ingredients together and store in a sealed glass jar.

  • 5-8 lb. pork shoulder
  • 6-8 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 packet Sazon Goya (found in most supermarkets in the ethnic aisle)
  • 1 tsp. Adobo seasoning (found in most supermarkets in the ethnic or spice aisle)


In a bowl, mix garlic, salt and oregano. Carefully with a sharp knife, make deep cuts into the pork on meat side and stuff the garlic mixture into the slits. The more cuts, the better the flavor. Sprinkle the other seasonings, Adobo and Sazon, all over the outside of the meat. Rub the seasonings in, making sure the entire surface is covered.

Roast the pork in a pre-heated 350 degree F oven for 4-6 hours uncovered in a pan with a rack. Roast the pork skin side down for the first 2 hours and then turn skin side up for the remaining time. Pork should be well done and tender when poked with a fork. The pork skin should be brown, hard and peel easily from the meat.

Some people like to eat the skin. Serve with rice and beans or potatoes and a vegetable or salad.

Pork Adobo on Rice

Pork Adobo on Rice


Adobo is a spice mixture popular in the Philippines and in Mexico, used to season meat, poultry, and fish. This spice mixture often consists of a blend of garlic, oregano, paprika, salt, pepper, and various other Spanish or Latino spices depending on the brand. Probably most famously used in chicken adobo or pork adobo, a Filipino dish.


Use to season meat, poultry, and fish. This spice mixture can be bought in dried form yet often this mixture of spices is prepared before cooking the meal that requires it.


Ground spices should only be kept for 6 months in airtight containers. Whole spices can be kept for two years in airtight containers.


Blend together your own mixture using the spices you have at home. Include dried chilies, fresh garlic, oregano, tomatoes, onion, cumin, vinegar, paprika, salt, pepper, cayenne, and sugar.

Interesting Facts:

In the Philippines, adobo is often one of the first dishes learned to cook.
