This month Iowa State University celebrated Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) National Heritage Month, though nationally AAPI Heritage Month is celebrated in May. ISU celebrates AAPI month in April because school is pretty much over this week. I decided to compromise by posting the first week of May and the last day of April.
For Women’s History Month, I wrote about ISU Professor Emeritus Pilar Angeles Garcia.
Shortly after this post, a colleague pointed out that Professor Garcia’s adobo recipe was located in Iowa State University Digital Repository in a 1955 article on Garcia in the Iowa Homemaker. The chicken-pork adobo recipe is pictured below. Rather than just add it to the comments of the original post, I thought the recipe deserved its own post.
This version of chicken-pork adobo is different than what I’m used to as there is no soy sauce and my mother doesn’t use lard or paprika, but I bet it’s still delicious. The thing about Filipino cooking is there is a lot of variety in the recipes.
You can find the article online or drop by the reading room. We’re open Monday – Friday, 9-5.
