In the small town we grew up in, there was a large Filipino community. Each year at the Black Walnut Festival their church would hold a fund raiser and one of the items they made were the most delicious grilled pork sticks. I spent enough time at their booth I should have volunteered.
  • Marinade
  • 2 C. Soy Sauce
  • 3 C. Vinegar
  • 3 C. Sugar
  • 1 Garlic Clove, minced
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • Pork
  • Use 2 to 3 lbs of pork butt or shoulder per ⅔ cup of soy sauce
  • Cut into cubes or strips
  • The thinner the strips the better the marinade penetrates and flavors the pork
  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients
  2. Marinate Pork Butt or Shoulder, sliced thin for 24 hours in the refrigerator.
  3. Thread onto long wooden skewers and grill.
  4. Cook until pork reaches 170 degrees
If diabetic, substitute ½ cup of Splenda for 1 cup of sugar
Unused marinade can be stored in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks
A recent variation Dr. Erlinda has tried is to cut the sugar by half and then add ½ cup of 7-up or Coke - it gives a different flavor to it and also it acts as a tenderizer for the meat
