You’ll hear me say over and over how a simple thing like sofrito will change your life. This is another one of those little life-changing secrets. Adobo, either this wet version or the dry version below, will change the way you make pork, chicken, beef, and even fish. I run the risk of repeating myself, but this is not shy or subtle. It is very much “in your face” food, and I mean that, of course, in a good way.

The salt keeps the garlic from flying all over the place as you pound them together.

This wet rub will keep for 5 to 6 days in the refrigerator, which gives you a chance to try it on anything you like, from fish fillets and pork chops to turkey cutlets and steaks.

I have never cooked before and I am just starting to try and cook more than a grilled cheese or mac n cheese. This is a really easy recipe to follow. I found that I would decrease the Kosher salt to 1 T because it is really salty. Additionally, I didn't have any vinegar, so I used 4 T of lemon juice. It tased great!!
