This adobo is glazed in the style of a salpicao, a popular Manila bar snack. It is beef salad, put simply and tastes delicious! The way Tim Luym approaches adobo, the rich vinegary stew that's the national dish of the Phillippines. He chooses a quick-cooking cut of beef and finishes it with a seasoned glaze (which is the one we chose.) Sunset Magazine 10/2008.
