Filipino Style Pork Barbecue

Summer is my favorite time of the year. For me, it is a time when I can slow down, relax and enjoy my time off from work.  It is a time when I can reflect and spend quality time with my family.  This means going for a walk, playing a board game, watching a movie or even enjoying a good meal together.  Barbecue is our favorite way to cook our food in summer. We use charcoal to barbecue our food. Our all-time favorite food to barbecue is pork. The pork is sliced thinly, marinated overnight, skewered on bamboo sticks and cooked on a barbecue grill.

It is a lot of work but it’s worth it :)

          The pork bbq is good by itself, dipping it in vinegar-garlic sauce is a personal preference. Enjoy!

    Good timing. I marinated it this morning and am about to throw it on the grill. Thanks for the quick update!

    Okay. That was fantastic. Didn’t really need the dipping sauce after all. The basting sauce was more than enough flavor for me. Thanks for the recipe!

      Hi Matt,
      I am glad you liked it :) Yes, the pork barbecue with the basting sauce is good enough as is and that’s how my family prefers it too. The vinegar-garlic dipping sauce is just my personal preference :)

      Hi Cassandra,
      I haven’t use this marinade recipe with chicken but I am pretty sure it will be as good as well. Chicken legs, I think is the ideal part to use and you can either grill or oven-bake it. Make sure to baste the meat occasionally. :)
