Filipino Pork Barbecue

This Filipino Pork Barbecue is hard to resist and not to tell you how easy it is to make. The secret of this recipe is to let the meat marinate for at least 3 hours if you are not in a rush you can leave it to marinate over night, in this way the meat will get that amazing flavor from all the ingredients.

The meat I cooked is pork shoulder but you can do this recipe also with pork belly or pork butt. The idea is that you cut the pork in very thin pieces.

In making this recipe very important is the marinate that we will make with soy sauce, juice extracted from calamansi or lemon, banana ketchup, brown sugar, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, lemon or lime soda or sprite/ 7-up. If you decide to leave the pork to marinate over night and refrigerate it. Before you grill it you should let it come back to room temperature.

Before you grill the meat you can soak the bamboo sticks in water. Now put the pork meat on the bamboo sticks and put them on the preheated grill. You should let them cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side. The time will also depend on the power of the heat. Now while they are on the grill you will baste the meat every now and then so they will get moist and shiny.

This Filipino Pork Barbecue will be loved be everyone and it is very easy and quick, you can easily make it on a picnic or at home when you have guests and you want to impress them with a delicious dish.

This amazing Filipino Pork Barbecue will go very well with different side dishes like potatoes or salads and you can also enjoy it with a special spicy vinegar.
