Filipino Pork Kebabs (Pinoy)

I had a package of country-style ribs and was craving kebabs.  I chose Filipino Pork Kebabs (Pinoy) or Filipino Street Food because they looked wonderful and received rave reviews on Pinterest.

This recipe for Filipino Pork BBQ is a definite KEEPER! The husband and I enjoyed them so much that I plan on serving this the next time we have guests.

It isn’t very often, but when we do, I struggle to plan an easy yet delicious meal everyone will enjoy. Don’t you guys?

I’m always afraid I will flop making the recipe, and then we have to order pizza. Well, this recipe is going to be the one to use on guests.  It’s so easy and so amazingly scrumptious!

Most recipes I searched used a pork butt (which I will use next time).  I had country style ribs ready to go so I used them.  They turned out great. You cut up the meat and toss it with the marinade.  How easy is that?  That is my favorite kind of recipe. No muss, no fuss…sort of.

How To Make Filipino Pork Kebabs (Pinoy)

The marinade recipe made about 2 3/4 cups for me.  Reserve 3/4 cup to baste the kebabs while cooking.  

I marinate most of our meats in a zip-top bag. It’s easier to store in the refrigerator and toss out when I’m done.

Marinate the pork for at least 4 hours minimum up to overnight.  I marinated ours for 12 hours and it was perfect.

Grill until pork is done.  It only took about 12 – 15 minutes for ours to be nicely charred and cooked through. They were perfectly seasoned, succulent, moist and soooo tender!
