Adobo sauce is traditionally made with a base of ground chile peppers, herbs, and vinegar — with other spices and ingredients added based on regional preferences. It can be found as a dry spice mix or wet rub paste and is most often used as a marinade or sauce. In fact, the word “adobo” comes from the Spanish word “adobar,” which literally means “to marinate.”

These three recipes make ample use of the versatile sauce to elevate ordinary steak, chicken, and pork from “meh” to marvelous. Get your taste buds ready…
