The theme for this month is Pinoy Barbecue. The kind that is served whenever there's some sort of celebration along with last month's theme the ubiquitous pancit. Usually pinoy barbecue is sweet and tangy and salty all at the same time. Our barbecue at home isn't the sweet kind because we don't like our meat to taste like dessert :)
My basic recipe for this barbecue, is to marinate 500 grams of meat (this can be pork or chicken) in about 1/4 cup of soy sauce, 1 teaspoon of fish sauce, minced chili, crushed peppercorn and the juice of 6 calamansi overnight. I also soak the barbecue sticks in water overnight so they wont burn. In the morning just before grilling, I thread the meat onto the bamboo sticks. I want my barbecue to be a little softer than the usual so I don't wait for it to char. Usually I grill them for 5-8 minutes on each side, basting it with a little oil and the marinade.
And finally, I serve it with Pinakurat (spiced Coconut vinegar) I swear this vinegar makes everything delicious!
