    <span style=”font-weight: 400;”>My Filipina wife has been very remarkable with her special dish, the food her country is so proud of – ADOBO. She is definitely a great cook. Now, I’m thinking about surprising her in one of the foreign dating tours we’ll be attending soon. And my surprise would be preparing Adobo for her. I want to cook that dish to let her know that I respect her culture. She’s so special and I think she’ll be happy to see me cooking that dish just for her? So please tell me, what is Adobo’s secret ingredient? To make sure I’ll cook the best dish for her!</span>

    The seasoning is made of salt, paprika, black pepper, onion powder, oregano, cumin, garlic powder, and chili powder.

    I’m not that familiar with this dish, but I am familiar with the spice mix Megan posted above.  From what little I’ve researched, the aforementioned spice rub/marinade hails from Mexico.  Filipino adobo is the dish itself.  I don’t know that there is a “secret” ingredient.

    I would suggest researching (Googling) Filipino adobo recipes and see which ones are highly rated and reviewed.  Some good sites are Taste of Home, Food Network, Serious Eats and allrecipes.

    It doesn’t have to be perfect or exactly how she or her family makes it.  I’m sure that she will appreciate the effort.

    Good luck, and tell us how it goes!

    Yeah, I didn’t know if he just wanted the spices or if there is something secret that is put into the spices?
