Basic Hamonado Recipe
- 1 kilogram Pork Liempo
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp white pepper (optional)
- ¼ cup rock salt
- 4 cups pineapple juice (unsweetened)
- 3 tbsp All Purpose Seasoning (optional only but not required)
- 5 cloves garlic, crushed
- Mix 1 cup brown sugar and about ¼ cup rock salt and dredge each piece of meat on both sides. I added All Purpose Seasoning for added flavor because I have an extra sitting in the pantry. But this is just optional.
- Set aside for at least 48 hours fully immersed in marinade. White pepper is optional. you may add more of either sugar or salt accordingly.
- In a large skillet, heat enough oil and fry crushed garlic until brown. Remove from oil and set aside. Fry all the liempo into the oil for about 5 minutes (remove excess marinade). Fry it on both sides until lightly brown. Drain from oil and transfer into another plate.
- In another large pan, add the liempo, toasted garlic, pineapple juice and left over marinade.
- Bring it to boil then adjust heat to low. Let simmer and cook slowly until meat is tender for about 20 minutes. Once the juice caramelizes with the oil and melted sugar becomes well blended. The color should be golden brown. Turn off heat.
