  2. Then rub the insides with salt and pepper including the body.
  3. Rub a little soy sauce on the inside belly of the pig.
  4. Stuff the belly with saba bananas, anise, green onion leaves, crushed garlic and laurel leaves.
  5. Next, stack the lemongrass the center stomach, and stitched the belly, making sure that no ingredients slip out.
  6. Skewer the pig with a mid-size bamboo and split roast over hot charcoal. Do not put the charcoal directly underneath the belly of the pig but over both sides, slowly churning the pig roast.
  7. While slowly roasting the pig, glaze it from time to time with sprite using a sponge. This will make the skin extra crispy.
  8. Roast for a couple of hours until the meat is tender. Do not overcook.
