  • 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, sugar, soy sauce, and ketchup 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.
