Marinate the meat
- 4 pork chops sliced into thin strips, or 1 tenderloin sliced into thin strips
- bamboo skewers, soaked for at least one hour
- 2 tbsp. brown sugar
- 4 cloves of garlic, sliced
- 1 cup apple juice
- 2 tbsp. soy sauce
- 2 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
- ⅓ cup of ketchup
- 1 tbsp. sriracha
In a non-reactive dish or a big ziploc bag, combine all of the marinade ingredients, mix well and then add the sliced pork.
Allow the pork to marinate from 1 to 8 hours.
Preheat your grill to high, about 450° to 500°F.
Skewer the meat onto the soaked skewers, pack those skewers tightly. (I did not pack them tightly, nor were my slices thin enough) Sear the pork over direct heat for about 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until the flesh is opaque. While the pork is grilling, you can brush it with the remaining marinade, brush the first side, then once when you flip, remember to flip them back over for a few seconds before serving.
Serve as an appetizer or with garlic fried rice and grilled veggies.
Street food is growing in popularity, with pop-up restaurants and street vendors. Filipino Marinated Pork Skewers are one such food that you would typically find on the street in Manila, but not likely to find in your town. This is super easy to prepare and toss on the grill for a party appetizer or just something delicious to nibble on if you’re stuck for dinner, just serve with some garlic fried rice and grilled veggies.
