As I was saying in my last entry, I love barbecues and grills. Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m forever experimenting with marinades.
So, recently, I tried a â€˜made upâ€™ (er, I didnâ€™t copy any recipe; so yes, itâ€™s original) marinade for a pork barbecue.
Here are the ingredients that I used in the marinade:
2 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp red chilli powder (optional)
1 small onion, cut in to wedges
1 tsp garlic, minced
1/2 cup tocino mix or brown sugar
salt and/or pepper to taste
I mixed all these ingredients with 1/2 kilo of cubed lean pork in a square ceramic pan. Then, I covered the pan with cling wrap and put the mix in the fridge overnight.
When I was ready to grill it, I just put them in the steel skewers. You can also use the wooden/bamboo skewers, if you prefer. This mix should be enough for about 12 skewers of pork BBQ.
If you want to use an outdoor grill (gas, wood, or coal), it should be okay too. But, for this, I used my beloved Breville Grill.
Hubbyâ€™s verdict: Finished 6 out of 8 skewers of this grilled pork barbecue. Good one.
