  • 2 pounds pork shoulder (tenderloin for softer meat) - cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup banana ketchup
  • ½ cup lemon soda - 7-Up or Sprite
  • 5 big cloves garlic - crushed
  • cup lemon or calamansi juice



  • Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix using your hands for at least 3 minutes.
  • Cover the bowl with cling wrap and let it marinade for at least 3 hours or if you have time place it in the fridge overnight for better flavor absorption.
  • Skewer 5-6 pieces of pork into a bamboo skewer or sticks starting with the fatty (belly) part and the rest with lean parts.
  • Add the oil and catsup to the leftover marinade sauce for basting. Brush the meat with the basting sauce before and while grilling. Grill until both sides are done.
  • Serve with spicy vinegar.
  • You may also use the rest of the marinade/basting sauce as a dipping sauce. Just transfer it to a saucepan and bring to boil. Then remove from heat and transfer to a dipping sauce dish.
