Pork Adobong Tarlac is a sweet version of the Philippine unofficial national dish, the adobo stew. I am not certain how this originated from Tarlac, my hometown. But it has flavors which most Filipinos and Kapampangans from my home province like– sweet. The sweetened flavors come from the pineapple juice marinade and pineapple chunks. A slow simmer yields a delightful entree that is great for a weeknight or family meal on weekends.
