Homemade Pork Tocino

TocinoThis recipe earned me the Rockin' Girl Blogger award from the Feisty Cook, Dexie. Although I've described the recipe in this blog previously, I've never really given a recipe since I don't ever measure when I'm making this. This time around though, at Peggy's request, I decided to measure out the marinade.

    Hi Jeanette! What a coincidence - i just made chicken tocino the other day and was thinking of blogging about it. Great mommy minds think alike eh? hehe

    Wow! This is very similar to how I do my home-made tocino, except I don't marinate it for 5 days. Hmmmm... will do it that way next time. Thanks for this recipe!

    hi chateau! yep, great minds in synch :) I have yet to try chicken tocino. You should post your recipe!

    Hi iska! Truthfully, there have been times when my family just can't wait that long and we've cooked it almost immediately after the marinade is poured over the meat :) It just tastes better the longer it sits in the flavoring.

    Ayayay, it was a bit on the dry side. Will have to tweak on my recipe first hehe. Good thing my critics are very honest - hub and the 2 kids haha

    hi! can i use white vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar? what's the difference between the 2 of them anyway, in terms of taste? thanks for sharing this recipe =)

    hi tita thessie! no, haven't had a chance to make the eggplant/hummus. Husby wanted the eggplant in curry instead, so I have to wait to try the one with hummus.

    Hey, I've tried making spring rolls though, it was a success! Will post soon :)

    hi chateau, oh, that's too bad :( Did you use breast meat? Maybe try using thighs next time? We're just all into chicken thighs right now. hehe!

    hi newbie cook, sure, you can use white vinegar. There is only a slight difference in taste between the two vinegars. It shouldn't matter much when you use it for this recipe. The apple cider has a slightly milder, sweeter taste, I think. The white is more acidic and straight forward.

    I hope you try making your own tocino. Just remember to cook it slow so it doesn't burn on you. Good luck!

    Yes, I used breast. Must use chicken thighs nga next time. I read they are a healthier alternative to red pork/beef meat anyway.

    Musta na.
