“Inihaw na baboy” – grilled pork – is a very tasty dish that is prepared a little differently everywhere. In the Philippines, you could buy this on the street, in a fast food or fancy restaurant, or you may be served this if you are a guest in someone’s home.
I had been wanting to replicate the taste I remembered from when my dad would have parties at our home every single weekend. Of course I do not remember the recipe as the cooks prepared it. I wish I had paid more attention back then instead of just eating.
2 pounds pork spareribs
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon crushed peppercorns
1/4 cup minced garlic
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup soysauce
1 teaspoon salt
Place pork in a plastic freezer bag or plastic container. Combine the rest of the ingredients and pour over the pork. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
The next day, drain excess marinade.
Grill over hot coals, or broiler, until done.
Serve with a dipping sauce made with 1/2 cup vinegar, 4 minced cloves of garlic, and salt or fish sauce to taste.
