Grilling Homestyle Filipino Barbecue, With a Side of Banana Ketchup

'The Meat Show' heads to F.O.B. in Brooklyn for fried pig ears, chicken adobo, and grilled pork

This week on The Meat Show, host and professional carnivore Nick Solares heads to the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn to sample the Filipino fare at F.O.B. (Fresh Off the Boat). Under the guidance of chef Armando Litiatco, Solares learns about the ways barbecue plays a role in the culinary culture of the Philippines, where Spanish, Chinese, and American influences also factor in.

In addition to a few meaty staples of Filipino cuisine — sticky, saucy pork barbecue on a stick and marinated chicken adobo — Solares tucks into a sizzling cast iron pan full of F.O.B.'s version of sisig. In the dish, soy-boiled pig ear, braised cheek, and roasted pork belly are diced to uniform size and cooked together over a high heat, then topped with crispy chicharrones. Watch the video above to see more.
