Filipino Pork Skewers

My best friend is Filipino. This post is totally from his suggestion! He told me I should make some Filipino pork BBQ skewers. I wasn’t sure if I could. I didn’t remember him ever cooking them or ever having them. After thinking about it, I remembered I did have these before, or something similar, when we went for Filipino food last time I visited him in San Diego. They are delicious!

I took the recipe and tried to recreate it myself. I even added some delicious mango onto the skewer because, why not? It added a delicious sweetness between the tasty chunks of marinated pork. While I made mine on a grill pan in the kitchen, you can enjoy these on a real outdoor grill too. Trust me, if I had access to one, these would be done on it. Maybe I’ll have to make these again for a summer party where a grill is available!

Filipino Pork Skewers-4

Directions:

Cut pork into 2 inch cubes.

Mix all other ingredients together in a large bowl. Add pork cube and
marinate in refrigerator for 3 to 9 hours.

Soak skewers in water at least 20 min. This will help them not burn on the grill. (If you are grilling indoors on a grill pan, you don’t need to do this.)

Add pork to skewers adding a piece of mango about twice on the skewer.

Place on barbecue grill on high heat and cook until meat is done turning
every few minutes to avoid burning and allow even cooking. Use left over
marinade to baste while cooking to add flavor and allow good
carmelization. You can also do this on a cast iron grill pan indoors.

Vinegar Garlic Dipping Sauce:

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend on low. It does not have to be smooth. Little chunks of garlic are great in it. Dip!
