There is nothing like tender, juicy grilled pork belly for dinner. In the Philippines, grilled pork belly is known as inihaw na liempo. It’s very popular dish there; in fact, it’s so important to Filipino cuisine that there are several dishes that make use of grilled pork belly as their main component.

Sharifa Carreon, aka MMcookingdiva, knows just how to grill it! Check out her mouth-watering, easy-peasy recipe below.

Serves: 6–8

Prep time: 60 min

Cooking time: 20 min


  • 1kg hormone-free pork belly, sliced
  • ¾ cup soy sauce
  • juice of 2 large lemons
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder or ½ bulb freshly minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp ground black pepper
  • 3 tsp sriracha or hot sauce


  1. In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic powder, black pepper and sriracha. Mix well.
  2. Put the cleaned pork belly inside a large, resealable bag. You can slice the pork belly thinner so that it quickly absorbs the marinade.
  3. Pour the soy sauce mixture into the resealable bag and massage into the pork. Let out all the air, then seal. Let the pork belly marinate for at least 1 hour. You can place the bag in the refrigerator during this process.
  4. Grill according to your preferred doneness. Serve with your favourite sauce on a bed of greens or with grilled veggies.
