What is “Filipino Pork BBQ”?
- marinated slices of pork meat in bamboo skewers and grilled to yummy-ness (so all you need is to grab as much BBQ sticks as you want and enjoy:)
We Filipinos have two distinct flavors in our palates – Sweet and Salty. And I think we have perfected our recipes to fuse these two great flavors, which makes this dish very delish!
And one tip – I like to dip this BBQ with spicy vinegar (pinakurat -local vinegar with spices like garlic, red chilies and pepper)
okay here’s the recipe…
prep time: a day (skewering takes forever!)
good for at least 4 hungry tummies
what you need:
- 2 lbs pork (use butt or belly just remove the skin) sliced
- 1 cup soy sauce
- lemon juice or calamansi (our local lime)
- 1 cup banana ketchup
- 1 small garlic, peeled and smashed
- 1 small onion minced
- 1/2 cup Sprite or 7UP
- 5 tbsps dark brown sugar
- salt and pepper to taste
combine all these ingredients, yes with the pork, in a mixing bowl, as if you’re massaging the meat being prepped for grilling 🙂
I suggest marinating the pork overnight. this will ensure that flavors will be absorbed completely by the meat. If you’re in a hurry you can marinate for at least 1 hour.
this BBQ is actually easy to make, its the marinating and skewering that takes long. You can always skip the skewering process. But this dish is well-known as BBQ sticks and I grew up with these yummies, helping my nanay in our humble kitchen. And tasting is my field of expertise 🙂
the hardest part – skewering the pork slices using bamboo sticks or skewers (kebab-like)
grill the pork and baste each side with the left over marinade.
and these mouth-watering Pinoy BBQ sticks are ready to serve!
enjoy my lovelies!
