A well-loved Filipino dish or snack, pork barbecues are usually part of typical Pinoy gatherings. Served almost anywhere in the Philippines, from barbecue stands along street corners to expensive restaurants, pork barbecue has also been included in the menu of fast food restaurants.
Unlike Western-style pork barbecue, the Pinoy-style pork barbecue has a very distinct taste because of its marinade as well as the grilling process which gives it additional smokiness. This food is usually paired with cold softdrinks.
Starting a pork barbecue business at home is very easy because you’ll only be needing a griller, skewers or barbecue sticks and the rest of the ingredients. Unlike other food items that require plates, spoons and fork, you won’t be needing utensils to serve it.

- 2 kilos sliced pork
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- lemon juice
- 1/2 cup banana ketchup
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

- In a mixing bowl, combine pork, soy sauce, lemon juice, ketchup, salt, brown sugar, ground black pepper and chopped garlic. Mix the ingredients well and ensure that they are properly distributed. It is recommended that you use your clean hands in mixing the ingredients.
- Allow the pork mixture to marinate overnight so that the meat will absorb the flavor. Refrigerate the marinade to avoid contamination.
- Skewer the sliced pork using barbecue stick or a bamboo skewer.
- Grill the pork until both sides are done. You may use the leftover marinade as basting sauce. You may also add a few tablespoons of soy sauce and ketchup and a tablespoon of cooking oil to the basting sauce.
