Grilled Pork Liempo Recipe

Grilled Pork Liempo Recipe

A truly decadent treat, this Pork Liempo recipe, simply put, is Grilled Pork Belly marinated in a mixture similar to Adobo. Though indeed tasty, the preparation and the cooking of liempo is somewhat direct to the point. There are different versions of this tasty dish. However, the very basics are: You marinate; you grill to perfection; you serve.




  1. In a bowl large enough to contain all the meat, mix soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, basil, oregano, ground black pepper and garlic. Mix well and ensure that there are no sugar bits settling at the bottom of the bowl.
  2. Marinate pork liempo (belly) in the mixture for about 30 minutes to 1 hour (or longer if you’re not in a hurry).
  3. Preheat turbo grill/convection oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  4. Place the marinated pork liempo (belly) slices in the turbo grill/ convection oven. Be careful. 🙂
  5. Add the oil to the leftover marinade and mix well. Use it to baste your pork belly slices.
  6. Set timer to 15 minutes first then baste the pork belly again. Do this every 10mins until the pork is evenly cooked to your liking. This is to ensure the pork doesn’t turn out dry and locks up all the juices.
  7. When done grilling, remove pork belly from the oven/grill and place in paper towels to help soak the oil from the fats.
  8. Chop into bite-sized bits or serve per slice. It’s your call.
  9. Serve as Pulutan or Serve with hot rice.
