Like what I've said in my last post. In addition to a good food recipe, Beef Bulalo, we had Inihaw na Liempo, which also served as pulutan (finger food/appetizer) for the late night drinking session in Tagaytay.
Inihaw na Liempo is one of food recipes that every Filipino loves to eat. Try it at home and have a taste of this good food recipe.
1 kg (2 lb) liempo (pork belly)
Cloves of 1 head of garlic, crushed
125 ml (1/2 cup) 7-up or Sprite
125 ml (1/2 cup) vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
Freshly ground black pepper
1 medium onion, finely diced
250 ml (1 cup vinegar)
125 ml ( 1/2 cup) soy sauce
Freshly ground pepper
1 sliced finger chili, (optional)
How To Cook:
Slice liempo (pork belly) lengthwise about 2cm (3/4 in) wide.
Combine garlic, Sprite/7-up, vinegar, sugar and pepper in a bowl. Pour over liempo (pork belly). Cover and marinate 3 to 4 hours in refrigerator.
When ready to cook, drain the pork and discard marinade. Heat grill to medium and grill pork until thoroughly cooked, about 15 to 20 minutes on the first side and 10 minutes on the other. Make sure not to burn the pork .
To make the Vinegar-Soy Dip; combine onion, vinegar, soy sauce and pepper in a bowl. Stir well to blend. If you wish to have a spicier dip, add the sliced chili according to your preference amount.
Serve the grilled liempo (pork belly) with the dip and cooked white rice.
