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.


  • Prep: 30 mins. - 1 hr.
  • Cook: ~30 mins.
  • Serves: 10

Filed Under


  • 1/2 kilo of pork sliced into slightly thin strips
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/4 cup banana ketchup
  • 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
  • a few tbsp of cooking oil
  • skewers

Step 1

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


Step 2

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


Step 3

Make sure you soaked your skewers to prevent them from burning when on the grill.


Step 4

Skewer the meat.


Step 5

Boil the marinade until it's reduced to half. Transfer into a bowl and mix in some oil. I prefer using half regular cooking oil half sesame oil. For this recipe I used about 2 tbsp of each type of oil. Mix them well. This would be a good glaze as we grill the bbq.


Step 6

Grill the bbq 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.


Step 7

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.

This is the BEST recipe ever!  My family and I absolutely love it!  Since it’s winter right now so a barbecue is out of the question, I cooked in a frying pan and served the meat on top of rice with some of the remaining sauce drizzled over the top!  Delicious! smile  I have a friend from the Philippines and he loved it as well.  He likes it spicy of course haha.
