Homemade Tocino #Recipe

One of the many  Filipino  dishes that my husband and  children likes is the tocino.  Tocino is one of the many popular pork dishes in the Philippines.  If you are Hispanic or know Spanish language, tocino means bacon.  It is a sweetened  cured pork.  We seldom have tocino because we buy it at an Asian market in Pittsburgh.  However, I learned how to make it at home  through watching YouTube videos.  Below is the recipe.


1/4 cup soy sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced (you can use garlic powder as well)
1/4 cup sprite
2 tbsp vinegar
1/4 cup pineapple juice (optional)
salt & pepper
1 lb pork (sliced thinly)
1 cup brown sugar
artificial food color (optional)

  • Combine the ingredients: brown sugar, food coloring, soy sauce, garlic and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Put the sliced pork in the bowl and rub the mixture liberally on all sides of the pork.
  • You can either use a zip bag and put all the pork and mixture or in a tupperware container for curing the pork.
  • Put inside a refrigerator and cure for 2 to 3 days.
  • After curing the pork, you can either fry or grill it.  Or you can  divide it  and put them in  ziploc bags and freeze it for late consumption.  At least that's what I do, I make a big batch then freeze them.
  • Warm a pan in a medium high heat, laid out the tocino strips, put the juice in it too.  
  • Let it cook until the juice caramelized then add  3 tabsp oil and continue frying.
You can serve it with fried rice and fried eggs.  Filip\inos  popularly call these food combo, tosilog (tocino, sinagag, itlog - tocino, fried rice, and egg).  I love eating mine in a plain steamed rice with  salsa.

If you have left over, you can use it as toppings for your quiche.
