This boodle fight gives popular dishes a unique spin using McCormick’s special mixes.

Grilled sinigang chicken

Marinade the chicken with McCormick lemongrass and turmeric sinigang mix. Once marinated, grill until it has a light char.

Pork ribs caldereta

Marinade pork ribs with caldereta mix, vinegar, and soy sauce. The vinegar will help tenderize the meat, soy sauce to season. Marinade overnight.

Once ready to cook, just let it simmer until meat falls off the bone.
