Puerto Rican Adobo

You can buy powdered adobo in the store, or make this simple marinade yourself. It's always delicious when done at home. You can mash in a mortar and pestle if you like. We've given a short cut way using the food processor.

  • 5 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 -3 tablespoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil


Using the metal blade of a food processor, chop garlic until minced. Add salt, pepper and oregano and pulsate until blended. Add vinegar and pulsate again until blended.

Add oil in a steady stream. Pulsate until mixture is well combined.

This is a fine marinade for grilled meat, chicken or fish. Rub gently into the flesh, then marinate overnight for best results.

Yield: 3/4 cup
