Chicken and Pork Adobo

Yield 10 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup)
This is a popular luau offering and is a national dish of the Philippines. Let your guests know that there are peppercorns in the sauce so they can avoid biting into them. The sauce has a strong vinegar flavor that is balanced by the pepper, soy sauce, and garlic.  Depending on your preference, you can use another cut of pork or even all chicken thighs.
