Filipino-Style Barbecue Meatballs Recipe

Ditch the sweet and sour sauce. Serve it with barbecue sauce!

Sweet and sour meatballs is a classic sauce for Pinoy-style meatballs. Why not swap the sauce for one that we love just as much or even more: Pinoy barbecue sauce. It's a marinade that is unique because of not one but two ingredients: the lemon-lime soda and the banana ketchup. The soda together with the calamansi juice is said to help tenderize the meat as it marinated but for this recipe, there's no need to tenderize the pork. 

The meatballs are instead made tender with the addition of bread crumbs while the marinade is turned into a delectable sauce you'll want to use for more than just meatballs.
