Directions:
Combine garlic, vinegar, soy sauce and peppercorns in a wok or saucepan. Add pork, chicken and water. Simmer over medium heat until chicken is cooked. Remove chicken from mixture, set aside and continue simmering until pork is tender. Oil will be expressed from pork fat- remove about ⅔ of that fat from the sauce to a separate container and increase heat to medium (fry the pork until golden brown- optional).
Return the chicken into that pot. Add annatto water to the adobo mixture and stir to incorporate. Reheat adobo mixture. Gently toss cooked meat. Some of the meat will stick to the pot so scrape the sides to include this (the secret to a good adobo). Serve warm.
