Filipino Style Pork Barbecue Skewered. I cooked this Filipino Style Pork Barbecue in the air fryer. The cubed pork belly was marinated overnight, so the marinade soaked into the meat, yielding that moist, tender, tangy, and sweet tasty bbq you can enjoy.
Filipino Pork BBQ
Filipino food is famous for its many different flavors from many different cultures. One dish that people love in the Philippines is Filipino Pork BBQ. It’s a great mix of sweet and salty, perfect anytime you want to eat some tasty food – like at a family get-together or when you have a barbecue
I prepared this Pork BBQ a while back, and we grilled it on the griller. But this time, I cooked it in my air fryer – a far cry from what I experienced in the Philippines in, which you cooked it and grilled them on charcoal. My children love this Filipino-style barbecue compared to the barbecue they tried at their friend’s house.
So I always make this.
