Filipino BBQ Recipe

Filipino BBQ


This is how we do our barbecue. Strips of pork marinated in a sweet and sour marinade. Skewered and grilled. The most typical type is pork bbq which I'm sharing the recipe now.

You would need:

-1/2 kilo of pork sliced into slightly thin strips

-1/2 cup vinegar

-1/4 cup ketchup (used banana ketchup for this recipe)

-1/4 cup soy sauce

-1/2 cup brown sugar

-1 tbsp hot sauce (can add more if you want it spicy)

-1 can calamansi soda (sprite would do as a substitute)

-1 head of garlic crushed

-1 small onion minced

-salt to taste

-1 tbsp cooking oil

-1 tbsp sesame oil


How to make Filipino BBQ

  1. Combine the liquid ingredients, sugar, onions and garlic and touch of salt to make your marinade.

  2. Add in the strips of pork. Let this marinade for a minimum of 1 hour, preferably overnight in the fridge.

  3. Make sure you soaked your skewers to prevent them from burning when on the grill. Skewer the meat. Set aside to let the excess marinade to drip.

  4. Boil the marinade until it's reduced to half. Transfer into a bowl and mix the oil. This would be a good glaze as we grill the bbq. Sesame oil makes the bbq aromatic as we grill.

  5. Grill the skewered meat over charcoal for a few minutes. Probably would take about 5 minutes on each side. Brush both sides with the glaze to give it some shine and color.

  6. My dipping sauce would just be some spiced vinegar. Crushed garlic, minced onions and chili in some cane vinegar with a few dash of fish sauce and about a tsp of sugar. Enjoy your Filipino BBQ.

    Never heard of banana ketchup before, but I'm definitely going to give this one a go (preferably when the English weather warms up a bit - which could be a while). Looks delicious!
