Filipino Pork Tocino

Look at that, its been a generation of breakfast for all of us. We become migrants in different parts of the world. But this migration has instilled in our hearts some kind of a loyalty and honesty that food is a nourishment to our heart and soul. Oh I miss home.. Im gonna eat first.. its good to be nostalgic while eating this.. it feels feels like home.

Before I proceed with my post,  thank you The Thrifty Couple  for choosing my Evaporated Milk Cheesy Soft Bars  as one of the features for Frugal recipes. Yes, these bars are easy to make, the ingredients is simple and they're delicious. If you are interested with frugal recipes and tips on how to do frugal ways, visit the blog The Thrifty Couple , its worth it..

Its been a busy week and my work as Accounts and Admin Support is overwhelming. The shipment has come and theres a lot of things to settle and done. My body is aching and my energy has drained already.  Its weekend and Im lazy, I need to listen to my body. I am suppose to go back to the office to finish my task but my body is not responding well. So, here I am, after a busy morning the Netflix is on and I remember I haven't shared yet what I cooked the past week. I decided to just write and later I will probably have some baking to do.

Anyway its again related with Tocino. I shared with you Filipino Chicken Tocino  last time. Actually Tocino would mean pork but in my case, I also use chicken meat which is healthier I suppose. But nothing beats the original, so after enjoying chicken tocino I know I would also want the pork version. You have the option to pick your choice of cuts but me, I opted to make Pork shoulder butt. 

If you want to know the history of Tocino, its here: Filipino Chicken Tocino
Now for the recipe.
Printable Recipe Ingredients:
1 kg pork shoulder butt, sliced thinly
1 1/4 tsp fine salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
4 to 8 garlic, grated
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup sprite or 7 up
freshly cracked corn pepper
2 tsp beetroot juice

Put the sliced meat in a bowl or ziplock bag
Sprinkle with salt and make sure all the meat is coated with salt
Set aside in the fridge for 1 hour.
In a bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients and pour onto the meat, mix well
Close the bag and refrigerate for at least 24 hours to allow the meat to cure.
Turn over the meat once in a while to make sure the meat is evenly coated with the marinade.

How to cook:
In a pan, put the cured meat together with at least 3 tbsp of water.
In a medium heat, let it simmer and cook until the water evaporates.
Stir from time to time then, add a tbsp of oil and let it cook.
You can also grill or use a skewer.

The good thing about tocino, you can actually put them in portion of small plastic bags, lets say 200 grams per pack. Store them in the fridge, just cook whenever you like it.
