Pinoy Pork BBq or Barbecue is called in several Filipino terms, like Inihaw na Baboy or Pork Inihaw, also Inasal na Baboy, or Pork Inasal. Its common marinade sauce is usually a mixture of calamansi, crushed black peppers, coconut vinegar, salt and annatto seeds, then grilled over charcoal fire. It’s served with steamed rice and a combination of calamansi juice, soy sauce and sometimes crushed chili peppers for those who prefer spicy dips.

Over time, many have learned their own styles and ways in preparing for pork bbq marinades, just like what we have here with Janis’s Inihaw na Baboy or Inasal. She uses Sprite soda and pineapple juice for her citrus ingredients, which is then combined with soy sauce, chopped garlic and ground black peppers to complete the marinade sauce.

Ingredients: 6-8 servings

1 lb. skinless pork belly
1 lb. of pork loin
2 cans of 12 oz. Sprite soda
1 can of 8.4 oz. pineapple juice
1 cup of soy sauce
4-6 cloves of large garlic, chopped
2 tbsp. of crushed black peppers

Cooking Preparation:

  1. Clean and cut pork loins and skinless pork belly in thin rectangular slices. Skewer 2-3 pieces in each bbq stick and set aside.
  2. On a large mixing bowl, combine all marinade sauce ingredients. Whisk to thoroughly combine the mixture. Save half a portion of the marinade for the basting process.
  3. Submerge each skewered meat into the marinade sauce and leave it in the fridge to marinade the meat overnight.
  4. Ready up the charcoal grill and start grilling each piece of the skewered Pinoy Pork Bbq or Inihaw na Baboy.
  5. Grill both sides of the skewered meat. Use the separated marinade to baste each side of the Pork Inasal or inasal na Baboy, while they are grilling. Serve hot with steamed rice with your choice of dip mixture.

Note: The best dip for Inasal na Baboy or Pork Inasal is calamansi juice with a mixture of soy sauce, chopped garlic, chopped siling labuyo and crushed black peppers. Otherwise, spicy vinegar is the best alternative to calamansi juice.
