Using pork shoulder for this will benefit the slow cooking process - whilst the sauce is reducing and concentrating the pork will soften and take on all the flavour, uhhhhhhh

  2. Place all the oil in to a saucepan on a medium high heat, when hot, add all the pork and give it a stir, you don't want to seal the meat.
  3. Straight away add about two thirds of the peppercorns, garlic and ginger, quick stir,
  4. Add all of the soy, water and vinegar, slosh it around and throw in the bay leaves, bring to the boil and turn down the heat to a gentle simmer. You'll let this go like this for a minimum of 90 minutes, all you have to do is not let it dry out - just add a little water if need be, but it must go for the whole time.

  5. When you've reached the target time all the liquid should have reduced down to a glistening coating on the pork - not dry and not sat in a pool. Grab a warm serving plate, build a pile of Adobo and serve.
