Method

Barbecued Pinoy pork with green mango slaw
  • 1
    Make mango slaw: Peel and de-seed mangoes. Cut into thin strips (this should yield about 2 cups). Mix mango and all remaining ingredients in medium bowl until well blended. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • 2
    Cut pork in half crosswise. Cut each piece lengthwise into 3mm thick strips. (Strips will be 2.5cm- 5cm wide).
  • 3
    Mix remaining ingredients in small bowl until well blended. Place pork in large re-sealable plastic bag. Add marinade; turn to coat well. Massage pork and marinade for 4-5 minutes. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • 4
    Remove pork from marinade. Thread pork onto skewers. Discard any remaining marinade.
  • 5
    Barbecue skewers over medium-high heat for 3 minutes per side, or until pork is cooked through. Serve skewers with green mango slaw.

Notes

Banana ketchup, or banana sauce, is a popular Filipino condiment made from mashed bananas, sugar, vinegar and spices. It can be found at Asian grocers or specialty supermarkets. Green (unripe) mangoes provide a sour, crisp tartness to foods, such as chutneys, pickles and salads. If you prefer chicken, use 500g boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs in place of the pork.
