Tocino

Tocino is a fresh cured meat that is common in the Philippines for breakfast. The preferred meat is usually pork but I have seen beef and chicken versions as well. From searching other sites, I found that most people marinade their meats only in salt and sugar. My dad's version is the best, I think, and I've shared his version In Our Kitchen.

If you'd like to learn how to make your own homemade tocino without all the preservatives, go on over there and try it out. Traditionally, tocino is served for breakfast with garlic fried rice and eggs, but there is no rule against having it for dinner. My husband can eat tocino anytime of day be it the Filipino way with rice or with potatoes, it doesn't matter to him.

Do you know how many times I've bought pork chops planning to make tocino out of it? It's been weeks since I saw this recipe on Dexie's site. I have to have to do this!!!
