For measurements I followed the adobo recipe on Nora Daza's book. I marinated the meat overnight.
Dumped the marinate in the pot and left it to simmer. I only mixed it when it started boiling. My Dad said that vinegar turns bitter when it's mixed prematurely (that got me scared). Also added some sugar. Don't forget to add water, about a cup for every 500 grams of meat.
