Kulinarya Cooking Club June 2010 : Pinoy BBQ three ways

Kulinarya was started by a group of Filipino foodies living in Sydney, who are passionate about the Filipino culture and it's colourful cuisine.

Each month we will showcase a new dish along with our family recipes.  By sharing these recipes we hope you find the same passion and love for Filipino food as we do.

This month's theme is Pinoy BBQ!

Filipino's love BBQ. In Philippines, when walking down the small streets in my Auntie's subdivision, people are barbecuing all sorts of meat in front of their homes to sell.  Some meats I know, some... hmmm, I don't want to know.  But, no matter what is cooking on their barbecues, it always smell so enticing.  The smell of barbecues gets me drooling all the time.

Barbecue is another one of those foods that are always present at a Filipino gathering. It is also found at all Filipino Fiestas. Most especially, barbecue pork on skewers.

Here's what I barbecued.

Whole Squid stuffed with raw sugar,then 
head and tentacles secured by 

Pork chops marinated in salt, vinegar and garlic

Pork skewers marinated in Filipino BBQ sauce

Marinade for the pork skewers is very simple.  I don't usually measure out the ingredients but play it by feel.  The main ingredients I always include is lemonade, tomato sauce, pineapple juice, sugar, salt and pepper.  The marinade needs to be thick so it can coat the meat.  Sometimes, if I find that the marinade is a little thin after marinading the meat, I place in a small pot and reduce it.  I then baste the meat with the thickened marinade.

It is currently Winter down here in Melbourne, so it was very cold when we were barbecueing (or should I say, Hubby and my dad, were barbecuing).  However, no matter the temperature or weather outside, barbecues are always welcomed at meal times.

It's great to have Kulinarya Cooking club to showcase Filipino foods. It's hard to find somewhere or restaurants to taste Filipino cuisine here in Australia. At least, I can see how good the foods look like via your blog and other participated food blogs.
