Filipino Pork Inasal

Filipino Pork Inasal

5.0(2)

Inasal, or inihaw, is a style of Filipino barbecue that features pork, chicken, or beef marinated in cane vinegar, soy sauce, calamansi or another citrus juice, garlic, ginger, lemongrass, spices, sugar and/or banana ketchup, and sometimes even Sprite or Coke! The meat is grilled over wood, charcoal, or on a gas grill and can be served as a snack, or as a complete meal with rice and vegetables alongside. Calamansi is a tiny citrus fruit grown in the Philippines–it’s floral and tart when green and becomes a bit sweeter as it ripens and turns yellow.

How to Make It

1. Step
In a large bowl, mix together the cane vinegar, soy sauce, calamansi juice, ginger, garlic, lemongrass, sugar, salt, and pepper. Stir until the sugar and salt have dissolved.
2. Step
Add the pork to the bowl with the marinade and toss with your hands or spatula to coat evenly. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight.
3. Step
Make the basting sauce: In a small bowl, stir together the annatto powder, canola oil, and banana ketchup.
4. Step
Preheat the grill to medium heat.
5. Step
Thread 4–5 pieces of marinated pork (about 2 ounces) onto each skewer.
6. Step
Use a clean cloth or paper towel dipped in canola oil to lightly grease the grill grates. Place the pork skewers on the grill and cook for 5–6 minutes per side, brushing with the basting sauce after turning, until the internal temperature is between 145°F and 160°F, 10–12 minutes total.
7. Step
Serve the pork inasal hot with steamed rice and cane vinegar, if desired.
8. Step
Enjoy!
