Asadong Manok or Chicken Asado is a traditional yet simple barbecue dish from the Philippines that includes 7up amongst it’s three ingredients.
“Filipino barbecue is a really popular street-food classic in the Philippines and you always see crowds gathering around the smoky pits chatting and eating chargrilled and blistered sweet and sticky pork and chicken. It’s the kind of sauce that makes your fingers sticky as well as your lips, mouth, cheeks… and 7Up is often used in the marinade not just for the sweetness but also because it helps tenderise the meat.”
