Tocino ( bacon in Spanish)

Hello everyone! First of all I would like to say thank you to all my followers. I hope you will try some of the recipes here 🙂

Anyway, the recipe that I will share to you now is  another Filipino favourite.  This is usually served on breakfast together with fried egg & fried rice. Tocino is a sweet  cured pork.  I got the recipe from Youtube and I love it. My husband loves it too so I hope you could try this sometime. You could watch it here  YouTube

Ingredients

For the syrup

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup pineapple juice

. Mix the two ingredients in a pot and boil. Set aside and let it cool down.

1 kilo pork,cut thinly ( you can use chicken too )

1/4 cup white sugar

2 Tablespoon rice wine/mirin

1 Tablespoon of fine salt

2 teaspoon ground pepper

.Put all the ingredients in a bowl  together with the  syrup. Mix it until fully incorporated. Put in the refrigerator and cure for two days.

After the second day, the cured pork can be either pan-fried or grilled. When pan-frying, heat the oil in a large pan over medium-to-high heat. Pan-fry the pork slices for two to three minutes on each side, until cooked through and browned. Transfer to a plate and continue frying the remaining pork slices. When grilling, grill the pork slices for two to three minutes on each side, until nicely charred.
