Ultra Rich Caramelized Filipino Pork Adobo

Another Adobo dish that I prepared last week. I really liked the result of this one.  Normally I don’t use brown sugar to caramelize the pork, I just brown the meat and then add all of the basic adobo ingredients. I could have adobo at least once a week, so comforting and reminds me so much of home. The only thing I don’t like when I make adobo is that I end up eating way too much rice:(
