I do not know about you, but I have enough of winter and am itching to work on our garden and set up the terrace to enjoy eating al fresco. But since it is still chilly and the weather is so unpredictable at the moment, I guess I will have to settle for oven grilling.

Get recipe for this sticky, sweet and salty BBQ Pork Belly in oven! | www.foxyfolksy.comThe recipe for this BBQ Pork Belly is so simple that it only needs 5 ingredients for the marinade, namely soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, salt and pepper and they are usually already in our pantry so I can make this anytime the craving for BBQ strikes. I added some chili flakes to make it a bit spicy but you can omit that if you are not a big fan of spicy food. I let it marinate overnight to let the meat fully absorb the flavor, however, if you pressed for time, a few hours should also suffice. After marinating, transfer what is left from the marinade into a bowl to use for basting.

You could also use the same marinade for other cuts of pork, like ribs or for other kinds of meat, like chicken.

  1. Hi Debs, tried your bbq yesterday for dinner. My hubby liked the taste. Thank you. I suggest covering the dripping pan with foil for easy clean up. Have a nice day.

    1. Hi Caroline, no it does not. Since it has brown sugar, I would not cook it too long or at a very high temperature to prevent burning the sugar into charcoal.

      1. For me i rate it 5\5 because i have followed the recipe but added a little honey and it was delicious…
