I have been having problems with my PLDT broadband connections lately, so this post is a bit late. I am here at the house of Joy Alonzo for dinner. Good thing, I brought my laptop and I can catch up on my postings.
Last Saturday, my family and I had our usual lunch.
I have not made my all time favorite Pork BBQ in a while. When Maya thanked me in FB for the recipe I shared with her 10 years ago, I decided to try it again.
1 K. pork kasim, sliced thinly
1/2 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. soy sauce
1/2 C. 7 up
1 T. MSG (Maya uses 1/2 Knorr Pork Cube instead)
1 t. black pepper
1-2 pcs. sili labuyo
Marinate the pork overnight in the refrigerator.
Sauce for basting:
1/3 C. cooking oil
1/3 C. UFC ketchup
3 T. marinade
Mix all the ingredients with a wire whisk.
* Some people do not use the marinade for basting since it is uncooked. My instructions to Hermie was not to baste the pork in the last 5 minutes of grilling.
Our Soup for the day was Chicken Mami.
1/2 K. chicken
2 T. fish sauce
1/2 K. fresh mami noodles
green onions, chopped
Boil chicken in water with salt and pepper. When cool, flake and set aside.
Saute garlic and onion in oil. Add the flaked the chicken. Continue sauteing then season with patis. Add the reserved chicken broth and season to taste.
Pour boiling water on the fresh mami noodles, then rinse with cold water.
Add the drained mami noodles to the soup and boil for a few minutes. Top with green onions.
We also had Baked Tahong.
The favorite of everybody.
Hermie was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO bad!!!! I asked her: Are you trying to kill Tita Portia?!?!?!?!?!
She made two sticks of pork FAT bbq!!!! And that was what Tita Portia ate!!!!
BAD! BAD! BAD!
My secret tip:
I used to have a pork barbecue business, well, I still accept orders but it has to be 3 days in advance.
I tried using the ordinary pork kasim from Rustans but it was still a bit tough on my opinion. The pork I use for my business is also from Rustans but special order. I ask the butchers to prepare it for me, more expensive but it is really super tender. If you grill the pork in the morning, it will still be tender up to the evening or even when you reheat the next day.
