Today I am sharing you this Filipino BBQ Recipe, that is very popular in our country. We always have bbq each time we have a gathering. Filipino bbq is very easy to make and it’s sweet, we marinate the meat overnight or 1 day. When making Filipino bbq you can use pork or chicken, it depends on what you feel like eating. However, mixing pork and chicken bbq is delicious as well. During my daughter 4th birthday party, I made chicken and pork bbq. The reason I did that is that some of our guests prefer chicken.
I marinated my bbq for about two days, the meat was so tender and it was full of flavor. The marinate contains banana ketchup, soy sauce, sugar, garlic salt powder, pepper, lemon juice, minced garlic and soda of your choice. I used about 6 boneless chicken breast cut it in a long strip. I choose to cut it into a strip that way it’s easier for me to put it on the skewer.
Marinating the meat for a long time really give it time to soak up the flavor. The meat was very tender, for basting you I used the same ingredients like the one I used for my marinate. I didn’t want to use the marinade I use for my meat to avoid getting sick. I fired up my grill to 350 deg, I didn’t want the grill to be very hot that way the meat won’t be tough.
This bbq is really delicious, our guest really enjoyed it and even complimented me for it. There are many variations on making Filipino bbq recipe, some do marinate it just for 3 hours. If you want more recipe, don’t forget to subscribe to my blog. Read more

This is a very popular dish in the Philippines, you can find a lot of people offers this kind of food on a lot of our streets vendors.

Cucumber Salad is what I used to eat all the time back when I was living in the Philippines. My dad loves eating cucumber and he always makes it with tomatoes, onions and some pepper flakes. Sometimes he even uses the hot chili, yes I was raised eating spicy food. I came from a big family who loves to eat and cook. Although, my parent’s life wasn’t easy we are thankful that they raise us all right.
Cucumber salad is very easy to make and perfect to have for lunch or dinner. My husband loves cucumber salad the way I make it. I prepare this about 4 times a week to go along with chicken, fish, or just for snacks. The first time I made cucumber salad was a few weeks ago. And to my surprised my husband ate it all, I didn’t really think he will eat it.
Ever since then I always remember to prepare this kind of salad. My husband and kids don’t like kimchi as much as I do. However, they are willing to eat cucumber salad, which is not bad really. It means more kimchi for me, anyway, this cucumber salad is delicious and doesn’t acquire too many ingredients. Read more
