Filipino BBQ Pork Skewers
Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes
Servings: about 16 skewers Serving Size: 4 oz Points: 4 pts
  • 2.5 lb pork country style ribs, all fat trimmed, cut into 1" x 1" cubes
For the marinade:
  • 6 oz 7-up
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1 lemon, juice of
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a large non-reactive bowl and marinate the meat overnight.
If using wooden skewers, soak in water at least an hour so they don't burn on the grill.
Thread the meat onto skewers and grill. Discard unused marinade. Enjoy!!

  17. My filipino friends grandmother used to make these and we were lucky enough to be invited over for dinner several times. They were so yummy. I have these marinating as we speak and it smells just like I remember. I used pork tenderloin cut very thinly which I will skewer onin a ribbon effect. I also threw in some chicken thighs as there was plenty of marinade. Now I have tomorrow's dinner ready too!

    I just found your website and I am hooked. I'm curious if you started off by joining WW? Do you have a success weight loss story to inspire me? I need all the help I can get.

  20. Made these last night and my youngest, who is the hardest to please, gave thumbs up! I've also made the asian glazed chicken, asian turkey meatballs and the carnitas, all with rave reviews! All are SO good!

  22. Hi Gina. I live in an apartment and don't have a grill. Any ideas on the best way to cook these? I have a George Forman.

  23. I used this marinade to make chicken skewers, and they were a huge hit. The chicken was nice and tender. Served with grilled pineapple and roasted sweet potatoes. Thanks for another success!

  24. This looks really good! Can you please add the actual calories and other nutritional information you normally add? Thanks! Can't wait to try!

  25. I'm doing WW but my husband is just counting calories. How many calories are in the marinade? Thanks so much for this site! I have lost 9 lbs in 3 weeks and my husband has lost 8 lbs now, we love the recipes and it makes eating better so easy and flavorful. Thanks again!

  26. Most of the marinade gets tossed, but honestly I will have to remake them to give you the correct calories. As the weather warms I will add them to my list.

  27. Mine is marinating right now for tomorrow's night dinner. I just cleaned up from fixing the swedish meatballs. They were a total hit with my family. I love your website and have already grocery shopped for 6 meals!! I would love suggested sides to go along with the recipes.....like what you typically fix. Thanks!!

  28. FYI... they work on a gas grill, but taste better on charcoal. Some filipinos add ketchup to the marinade too. But that may increase calories.

  29. I was hoping to make these tonight but don't have any Sprite (or any soda for that matter) in my house. Any suggestions for a substitute?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Could this marinade be used on veggies or in a rice? Looking for ideas to spice up my carrot, squash, zuchinni mix that I usually serve with skewers.

    ReplyDelete
  31. can I use gingerale??

    ReplyDelete
  32. I used this marinade on Tofu and it was simply delicious! I will never again use another marinade to prepare tofu. Thank you so much!

  36. My husband wants me to make these once a week! And he says he doesn't like Filipino cuisine. It's our secret! Thanks for sharing, it was very tasty and easy to prepare.

  37. You use bone-in pork ribs and then cut the meat off the rib bones into 1 inch cubes? Is that correct?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Can you use red wine vinegar instead of white vinegar? Does it change the taste much?

    ReplyDelete
