Another pinoy grilled food that everyone loves, pork barbecue! It is one of the most popular street foods in the Philippines.
When you say barbecue, what comes to mind is the pork grilled version. Barbecue is traditionally served on a stick. You'll find it being sold by street vendors and it is also being served in restaurants.
It's one of the easiest ways to prepare a snack, pulutan or partner it with rice. It is a staple food during fiestas or even in simple celebrations. All you need is to marinate the pork, skewer it and grill it. The taste all depends with your marinade.
There are different ways in preparing the marinade and the flavor also varies from one place to another in the country.
Here's a recipe from panlasangpinoy.com
ï‚§ 2 lbs pork, sliced
ï‚§ 1/2 cup soy sauce
ï‚§ Lemon juice from 1 piece lemon
ï‚§ 1/2 cup banana ketchup
ï‚§ 2 teaspoons salt
ï‚§ 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
ï‚§ 3 tablespoons brown sugar
ï‚§ 8 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
1. Combine pork, soy sauce, lemon juice, ketchup, salt, ground black pepper, brown sugar, and chopped garlic in a mixing bowl then mix the ingredients well. Make sure that all ingredients are properly distributed; using your hands in mixing the ingredients is recommended.
2. Marinate the pork in the mixture overnight. Make sure to refrigerate the marinade to avoid contamination. If in case you are so eager to grill right away, allow at least 3 hours for the meat to absorb the flavors.
3. Skewer the sliced pork using a bamboo skewer (this is also the same as the barbeque stick that we know).
4. Grill the pork until both sides are done. Use the leftover marinade as basting sauce. Try adding a few tablespoons of soy sauce, ketchup, and a tablespoon of cooking oil to create the perfect basting sauce.
5. Serve with spicy vinegar. Share and enjoy!
