I have something to share about what I have learned in the proper use of vinegar in sauces or in whatever pinoy food that involves vinegar (e.g. adobo, paksiw,....yummy. When cooking with vinegar, (even if it involves sauteed onions and garlic or the cooking container already has food contents in it) always allow it to boil properly and stir it only if the smell of the vinegar is minimized. There is always a weird after taste that is undesirable in any of it if it is not properly cooked. Prematurely stirring it will make the undesirable taste from vinegar to mix with other liquids in the cooking container. Try it and see the difference.
