Filipino Pork Kebabs (Pinoy)

Filipino Pork Kebabs (Pinoy) - This kebab recipe is sooooo delicious. You must give this a try the next time you want to grill.

Filipino Pork Kebabs (Pinoy)

I had a package of country style ribs and was craving kebabs.  I chose the 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 I plan on serving this the next time we have guests.  Which 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!

Filipino Pork Kebabs (Pinoy)

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 all 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.

Pop it on a hot grill over direct heat and baste with the reserved marinade while cooking.

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!

Filipino Pork Kebabs (Pinoy) - This kebab recipe is sooooo delicious. You must give this a try the next time you want to grill.

You will make this on a regular basis, I promise. Ok maybe that’s just me but I hope you enjoy the recipe.

      YUM- How wild that 7-Up is in there! I’ve definitely heard of using Coke or Dr. Pepper, though, so I guess it shouldn’t be such a surprise. Appreciate you bringing this to Snickerdoodle Sunday so I could see it!!

      I remember visiting the Philippines many years ago and was blown away by the food. So, I believe you when you say this is delicious. I’ll file the recipe. In the meantime, I thought to share that I recycle sturdy ziplock bags as they are easily washed with soapy water. Less landfill, happier me.
      Hope to seeing you again tomorrow at FineCraftguild when a new edition of SHARE IT starts. Thank you for linking this up! ~ Rose

      These look right up my street. I love homemade kebabs and marinades. What did you serve them with? Also what’s banana sauce? I’ve never heard of it.
