Being it was the Australia day long weekend last weekend, we couldn't help but celebrate with a little barbecue at home. What other way to celebrate Australia's multiculturalism than to have a Pinoy style pork barbecue and java rice! :)
We found this simple recipe to marinate pork. Just soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, garlic and Sprite. After an overnight soaking in the marinade, I fired up the barbie and the results were almost as good as the pork BBQ we have back in the Philippines.
As for the fried chicken, we actually brought back some store bought fried chicken mixes from our last trip back. I actually tried it for the first time the other day and it wasn't too bad. The chicken actually almost tasted like Jollibee Chicken Joy. Couple that with the instant gravy it was again another taste of home. The kids liked it as well and eagerly ate up the chicken with gravy and rice.
Now, if only I can find more of these in Adelaide.
