Recipe Details

Pinoy Pork is a popular Filipino street food of grilled pork skewers marinated in banana ketchup and spices. A sweet, sour, and slightly spicy slaw made with unripe mangos provides a crunchy and cooling contrast to the vibrant, distinctive flavor of the pork.

For the Slaw:

  1. Mix the mangos, cashews, red onion, banana ketchup, fresh cilantro, lime juice, jalapeño, sea salt, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper (first 10 ingredients) in medium bowl until well blended. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

For the Main Recipe:

  1. Cut pork in half crosswise. Cut each piece lengthwise into 1/8" thick strips. (Strips will be 1" to 2" wide.) Mix remaining ingredients in small bowl until well blended. Place pork in large resealable plastic bag. Add marinade; turn to coat well. Massage pork and marinade for 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Refrigerate 1 hour. Remove pork from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Thread pork onto skewers. If using wooden skewers, soak thoroughly in water for at least 30 minutes before threading with pork. This prevents the skewers from burning when on the grill.
  3. Grill skewers over medium-high heat 3 minutes per side or until pork is cooked through. Serve skewers with slaw.


Substitution: Use boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs in place of the pork tenderloin.
