Spicy Korean Pork Adobo Recipe (Prepared with the De’longhi Multifry Multicooker)
You can tell how much I love adobo by the number of articles I’ve been posting about it recently. Doesn’t it blow your mind knowing how a few basic ingredients can actually turn into something so good, that it has become iconic in the Pinoy culture? If you ask me, Adobo should be the “Pambansang Ulam ng Pilipinas” (that is if it’s not yet the one).
The beauty of adobo is that Filipinos can come up with lots and lots of versions of it, yet it still keeps its uniquely Pinoy identity. One example is the Creamy Chicken Adobo I posted a few weeks ago, which surprisingly is also pretty good.
Now, allow me to share with you another unique Adobo recipe (courtesy of my foodie buddy: Emon), which brings your usual adobo to a whole new level of goodness by adding a simple Korean Twist.
I present to you: the Spicy Korean Pork Adobo!
This version of Adobo is made spicier by adding Gochujang Sauce – a Korean condiment made primarily from red chili peppers. Preparing this simple yet tasty ulam was made even easier with the De’Longhi Multifry Multicooker. We simply had to set-up the correct settings and we were cooking in no time!

SPICY KOREAN PORK ADOBO RECIPE (Using The De’longhi Multifry Multicooker):
1 kilo Pork
Crushed Red Peppers (optional)
1. Put pork inside the De’Longhi Multifry Multicooker pan
2. Turn on the Multicooker and set the Cooking Programme to PAN. This programme cooks in much the same way as a saucepan, and is great for braising, boiling, and even lightly frying meats.
3. Adjust the degree of cooking to three bars only (the default setting of PAN is at 4 bars).
4. Set the timer to 25 minutes.
5. Close the lid and wait until the timer stops or until the pork is lightly brown. Don’t worry about having to mix around the meat because the De’Longhi Multifry Multicooker’s paddle automatically mixes the food.
6. Take off the cooked pork and set aside.
7. Sauté garlic and onions until brown (again, the paddle does all the work). Add back the pork you set aside and let the flavors seep into the meat.
8. Add soy sauce, vinegar, and black pepper to taste. You can add crushed red pepper if you want it spicier.
9. Allow the soy sauce and vinegar to be absorbed by the meat. After a few minutes, you can now add the Gochujang Sauce.
10. Let the paddle mix the food until the sauce becomes thick and meat is reddish.
11. Tadaaaa! Your Spicy Korean Pork Adobo is now ready for serving.
See? Easy peasy. It’s amazing how we only needed to push a few buttons and simply throw in the ingredients one by one and we ended up with a dish that’s oh so mouth-wateringly good! I’m telling you, the De’Longhi Multifry Multicooker works wonders!
There’s a whole bunch of recipes online that you can prepare with the De’Longhi Multifry (yep, there’s an app for that). I’m looking forward to making some dessert!
