Pork Adobo

According to Wikipedia, adobo refers to a common cooking process indigenous to the Philippines. In the late 16th century, the Spanish colonists encountered a cooking process that involved stewing with vinegar. They referred to it as adobo due to its similarity to the Spanish adobo.  Although, Filipino adobo is quite different from Spanish adobo.

The ingredients in cooking Filipino adobo are soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, peppercorns and laurel leaves. This method of cooking can be applied to meat, seafood or vegetables.
