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 pork meat marinate for at least 3 hours or if you are not in a rush you can leave it to marinate overnight, in this way the pork 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 slice the pork in very thin pieces.

In making this pork recipe is very important to marinate the pork bbq. The pork marinade we will make with soy sauce, juice extracted from calamansi (Filipino lime) 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 overnight and refrigerate it you should let the pork meat come back to room temperature before you grill it.

Before you grill the Filipino pork bbq 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 the pork sticks cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side over the hot barbecue coals. The time will also depend on the power of the heat. Now while they are on the grill you will baste the pork meat every now and then so they will get moist and shiny.
