Pork Barbecue, Filipino Cooking Style

Jun 12

Pork barbecue is a fast selling food item. It’s easy to cook and convenient for the hungry customer. The only thing I dislike about grilling the pork barbecue is the smoke. In our old neighborhood, I told the maid to grill just outside the gate. Now some passerbys often think we are selling barbecue. Hehe, maybe I will sell them one of these days. Anyway, I prefer my barbecue to be a bit sweet. Here’s my recipe for Pork Barbecue Marinade:

2 kilo pork slices (liempo)
1 bottle 7-UP
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup vinegar
2 Tablespoons minced garlic
2 Tablespoons hot sauce
2 Tablespoons worcestershire sauce
3 Tablespoons salt
Black Pepper

    Which of the ingredients do you think improves the smell of the barbecue’s smoke while it is being cooked? Hmmm, please help me out or email me. Thanks ^_^

  • noemi

    @ken- the garlic!

  • http://www.moushigo.com/ Ken

    Excellent! I was kinda having a hunch that it would be the garlic ^_^

    hi, do I have to brush anything on the barbecue while grilling it?
    Is the 1 bottle of 7-up equivalent to 1 can of 7-up? :)

  • noemi

    use the excess marinade to brush the meat.

    1 bottle of 7 up approximately 1 glass or 1 bottle.

    I’d love to try this recipe out, but I wasn’t sure about how much 7 UP to include. The recipe calls for 1 bottle, what is that equivalent to: 1 can/12 oz?

    Thank you.

  • Lian


    What is the equivalent size of a bottle of 7 UP? Is it a can/12 oz?
