Filipino BBQ pork chop is my definition of a good grilled pork chop. This has an awesome taste which you will find interesting. It goes well with rice along with some salted eggs and Filipino salad (ensalada).
Preparing Filipino BBQ Pork Chop is easy. The first thing that we need to do is marinate the pork in a special mixture of soy sauce, ketchup, and seasonings. I suggest that you let the pork stay overnight so that it can absorb the marinade better. If you are in a hurry, 3 hours should be enough.
When grilling the pork chop, it takes a little skill and experience. Some grill produces too much heat. This can burn the pork chop easily while leaving the inner part raw. If this is the scenario, try flipping the meat every 3 minutes while basting with the leftover marinade. This method will avoid burning and will keep the meet moist and savory.
What is the best dipping sauce for BBQ Pork Chop dish? Spicy vinegar will work, so will ponzu or toyomansi , which is a combination of soy sauce and lemon. Inihaw na pork chop is another grilled pork chop dish similar to this one.
