Yes! Believe it or not, thats what I call this recipe. I really dont know the original name for this. I got this smoking Filipino recipe from my Granny. Years ago, when I was a kid, I always wondered on what my grandmother is doing with the Sprite.
Since we all know that its a softdrink. I never knew that I can be used for cooking. This Filipino pork recipe is a mix blend of sweet with a bit of a sour taste. Try this at your own risk! hahaha.
