Grilled pork on a beautiful weekend


What better way to spend a sunny weekend than a fun afternoon with friends and food from the barbie?  And that's exactly where we found ourselves, basking in the sun and having a jolly good time!

My compadre Ricky generously shared his recipe for the marinade used for his yummy grilled pork for the blog.  And here it is for your outdoor enjoyment!

Ingredients:
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup banana ketchup (the sweet variety of ketchup works best.)
1 heaping tablespoon brown sugar
1 head garlic, bulbs crushed
dash of salt and pepper
This is good for a kilo of pork liempo
Sprigs of rosemary (optional)

Procedure:
Mix all ingredients (except rosemary) and let pork marinate.  It is best to leave this overnight but if you do not have the time, a couple of hours will do.

Incidentally Ricky has a rosemary bush thriving quietly in a corner.  We broke a few sprigs and occasionally threw these into the fire.  It released a rather delicious aroma which also flavoured the pork!
Here's to more sunny weekends!
