I am a fair mix of Asian. So there is no surprise that I love salty, “melts in your mouth”marbled fat with soy based sauce bathing my rice. In other words, I love me some filipino adobo… But this recipe is my gluten-free version, that’s kind of adobo, but it’s not.


Adobo calls for vinegar, garlic, and soy sauce. I tweaked this recipe a fair bit because I wanted it to be gluten free (Soy sauce has gluten), without vinegar and have more flavor.

Here’s what you’ll need:

A pressure cooker. If you don’t have one, buy one. This can help make curries, stews, ribs and any meat “fall-off-the-bone” tender, while cutting the cooking time in half.


  • 1 kilo pork ribs
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1/2 cup tamari
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 1 thumb size ginger, sliced
  • 3 medium sized potatoes, quartered and cooked separately.



  1. Rinse pork.
  2. Place all ingredients (except cooked potatoes) and cook in pressure cooker for about 20 minutes. Release pressure and add potatoes. Serve with rice and enjoy!
