Barbecue Pork Belly Skewers



6 portion(s)

  • 1 kilo Pork Belly, cubed, 2x2 cm
  • 1 onion
  • 7 garlic cloves
  • 250 grams soy sauce
  • 60 grams Calamansi juice, or lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 60 grams raw sugar
  • 125 grams banana ketchup, or tomato ketchup
  • 125 grams Lemonade
  • bamboo skewers, soaked in water for min 20mins

Recipe's preparation

  1. Place cubed pork belly into a container to marinade in and set aside. Add onion and garlic cloves to TM bowl and chop 5 sec / speed 7. Scrape the sides of the bowl.

  2. Add all the remaining marinade ingredients and mix 10 sec / speed 4.

  3. Pour marinade over pork belly. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, turning occasionally. The lemonade in the marinade acts as a tenderiser and adds flavour to the pork; the longer the pork is marinated, the more flavoursome it will be.

  4. Thread pork into pre-soaked bamboo skewers. Do not throw out the marinade.

  5. Cook the skewers over live coal, turning and basting with the reserved marinade every few minutes until cooked through (this should take approximately 10 minutes).

  6. Serve and enjoy immediately.

Calamansi is a Filipino lime which, along with banana ketchup, can be found at selected Asian grocers. Otherwise, lemon juice and tomato ketchup are adequate substitutes and won’t compromise the flavour of this recipe.

As mentioned in the recipe, the lemonade not only enhances the flavour of the meat but it also acts as a tenderiser. If you’re feeling adventurous, substitute with beer.

    Delicious. I marinated some ribs for the next night. Is that why the recipe says not to throw the marinade away? or just for the basting?
