Filipino BBQ Pork Skewers / Something on a Stick Day
Everything tastes better when served on a stick! Haha! These are some Filipino BBQ Pork Skewers I made in the oven on a grate -- simulating a grill, but you don't have to start up the grill.
Almost every Filipino BBQ has pork or chicken skewers with these flavors!
What I used:
- Pork steak -- cut roughly into 1 1/2" or 2" skewers
- Mama Sita's Barbecue Marinade
~1 pound of meat was enough for 4 skewers
- Baking pan (9" x 13")
I did this the day before, but you don't need to marinate them as long.
After cutting the meat into smaller 1 1/2" or 2" chunks, I put them on skewers.
To marinate the pork, I used a 13" x 9" baking pan with foil in the bottom. I put marinade in the bottom of the pan, then I put the skewers in and I poured some on top. Then I flipped the meat over. I ended up marinating them overnight, but on the bottle it says that you only need to do it for a few hours.
To cook the meat, I took it out of the fridge and let it defrost on the counter for 30 min. or so.
I preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
I took out the wet foil with extra marinade and threw it away. I rinsed out the bottom of the pan, so it wouldn't burn in the oven. Then I put a grate over the baking pan, so the meat could be cooked on the top and bottom -- like a grill.
I put it in the oven when it was still preheating. I baked it for 25 minutes, but it wasn't at full temp the whole time. If you wait to put your skewers in the oven at 400 degrees, it may only take 20 min.
