If you love adobo so much, you should try pork humba, adobo’s close cousin from the south. Pork Humba’s recipe uses the same ingredients that help accentuate the distinct adobo taste – Datu Puti Soy Sauce and Datu Puti Vinegar. Sweetness is the taste that draws the difference between pork humba and our traditional adobo. Pork humba uses additional ingredients such as panutsa, sugar, and black beans to add a pinch of sweetness to its savory sauce.
