Pork Tocino (Burong Babi) (kawalingpinoy)

2 lbs pork butt, sliced 1/4″ thick
1 c sugar
1 T salt
1 T garlic powder
2 – 3 drops red food coloring
2 T oil

In a bowl, combine pork, sugar, salt, garlic and red food coloring. Massage meat with curing mix until well distributed and evenly colored. Store in a covered container or ziplock bag and refrigerate overnight to cure. In a pan over medium heat, add pork including marinade and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and simmer until meat is tender and cooked through, adding more water in 1/2 c increments as needed. When water is completely absorbed and meat is tender, add oil and cook, stirring regularly, until meat caramelizes. Serve hot. Yield: 4 servings. Note: Red food coloring is only to achieve the traditional color of tocino and can be omitted without change to flavor.
