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

    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.

  3. I'm anxiously awaiting for the calorie count on it too! They sound SO yummy and I can't wait to make them!

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. 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!!

    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.

  10. 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!

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

  12. 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!

  13. 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.

  14. 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!
