What is a classic Filipino BBQ?
I’m sure there are many barbecue recipes out there, this recipe however it’s probably unique to Filipinos. It has an unusual ingredient added to make it extra yummy! Filipinos add cola or soda of their choice to their marinade then it’s marinated overnight.
This is considered as a street food, this is one of the dishes that the street vendor would sell alongside other bbq sticks like chicken feet, betamax (congealed pig blood), chicken intestine (isaw) and many more.
700g pork loin
250ml soy sauce
250ml cola or soda water
150g sugar or brown sugar
4 garlic cloves
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
Container or ziplock bag
2 tablespoon corn flour
First make the marinade, add all of the ingredients into a bowl and give it a good mix.
Add pork loin into the marinade a ziplock bag or empty container. Pour the marinade making sure that the meat is covered. Mix the marinade and the meat well. Close the bag or container well.
Marinate the meat in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight. The longer you marinate the better it tastes.
Once it’s merinated, place the pork on your bbq or grill and cook each side well. Make sure it’s cooked through and the juices run clear.
Don’t waste the remaining marinade, turn it into a homemade BBQ sauce. Pour the marinade into a sauce pan and bring it to a boil for 15-20minutes. Thicken it with a mixture of cornflour and water. Pour the thinking mixture into the boiling sauce while stirring at the same time. Once thicken, turn the heat off and leave the BBQ sauce on the side to cool down. Once cooled transfer it into a jar and keep it in the fridge.
Serve your Filipino barbecue with some rice, vegetables and some homemade BBQ sauce.
