I just cooked some adobo pork spare ribs. Super sarap talaga.
I experimented a little bit by putting a little bit of five spice powder with the usual adobo TSB ingredients (toyo, suka at bawang).
Sarap din ang labas. Don’t put a lot though.
Just sprinkle some 5 spice powder.
It’s quite overpowering if you put too much of this powder.
(5 spice powder is Ngo-Hiong in Chinese).

Here is the recipe for Chinese Five Spice Powder:

How To Make Five-Spice Powder:

Five-spice powder encompasses all five flavors – sweet, sour, bitter, pungent, and salty.

In a dry skillet, roast 2 teaspoons of Szechuan peppercorns by shaking the pan over low to medium heat until the aroma of the peppercorns is released (about three minutes).
Grind the roasted peppercorns and 8 star anise in a blender or pepper mill.
Strain the blended seasonings. Mix in 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves, 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon ground fennel seeds.
Grind the seasonings until very fine.
Store in an airtight container.

Tips:

Use five-spice powder sparingly, as it can be quite pungent.
If desired, you can substitute black peppercorns for the Szechuan peppercorn, and ground anise for the star anise (use 4 teaspoons of ground anise).

What You Need:
Spices
Skillet
Blender or a Spice Mill
Airtight Container
