Inihaw na Liempo Recipe

Inihaw na Liempo is known as Grilled Pork Belly in Filipino. This dish needs no introduction at all because the name of the dish already introduces itself. Inihaw na Liempo is also a popular and favorite dish in the Philippines; in fact, there were several dishes that makes use of this dish as its component. Sinuglaw and Special Tokwat baboy are few of the examples.

Inihaw na Liempo

Inihaw na Liempo is something that I enjoy to have. It is prepared in a simple manner and the cooking process is not complicated, but it is full of awesome flavor.I love to eat liempo with steamed white rice along with a dip composed of vinegar, soy sauce, and chopped onions. Toyomansi also goes well for this dish. Sides such as Ensaldang Talong (eggplant salad) is perfect for this dish — and so is mangga with bagoong.

How do you eat Inihaw na Liempo? For me, I love to eat it the traditional Filipino “Kamayan” way. This means that I eat the meal without using any utensils. Rather, I use my fingers to chunk the rice and meat together and eat it that way. There is an art in eating food this way, and Filipinos are really good with it. There are even times when I try this method even if I am eating sinigang na baboy — it is quite challenging if done with soup dishes or dishes with sauces, but it works.

  1. I’ve tried most of your recipes and they turned out good. I saw on a Filipino Channel a presentation of BELLYCHON. I tried to copy it but it turned out to be bad and not crispy. Could you please come up with a Panlasang Pinoy version of BELLYCHON. Thanks.

  2. Is it ok to replace the lemon with orange? thanks

    • Aikawa says:

      You can also use tomato ketchup, just add a tablespoon of sugar for every 1/4 cup of ketchup. :D
      It might taste a bit different, though, depending on your brand of tomato ketchup. :D

    I don’t have a grill around. Would you suggest any drastic variations if I bake it instead? :)

    nice work pero baka kelangan i-boil yung basting sauce or siguraduhin na nasunog yung mga bacteria dahil contaminated siya kung galing sa marinade.

    • aurora lambino says:

      whooops… same sentiment here… i was always taught to throw out the marinating solution and not re-use it in the cooking process…

    • I agree with Elenor. You only cook the marinade if you’re going to make a sauce out of it. I’ve done it before. Basting sauce is obviously different from dipping sauce. The basting sauce is being cooked at the same time with the meat so it’s not raw.

  9. kuya.ask ko lng po about dto sa inihaw na liempo kung pwde ba ang vngar ksi wla me stocks na lemon.pwde po ba?

  10. OMG this one is a killer. 2 serving of steam rice won’t be enough! with matching sukang maanghang na my calamansi…the bomb!
