Homemade Pork Tocino Recipe

Homemade Pork Tocino


  • 3 lbs boneless pork shoulder roast
  • 1¼ cups pineapple juice
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ½ cup lemon-lime soda
  • 1/3 cup light soy sauce
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Freeze pork shoulder roast for an hour or so to firm it up so that it’s easier to slice. Cut 1/4-inch slices of pork shoulder and place in a one gallon zipper-lock plastic bag.
  2. Mix the rest of the ingredients in bowl and then add to the meat. Seal the bag, doing your best to remove excess air. Let the pork cure in the refrigerator for a 4-5 days, flipping over the bag every day or so.
  3. After curing, you can either cook the meat or portion them off into smaller bags and freeze them.
  4. To cook the tocino, add a little water, marinade and a few slices of meat to a skillet. Over medium heat, let the liquid boil off and then fry the meat for a couple more minutes to caramelize it. There’s a lot of sugar in the marinade so make sure you don’t burn the meat. You can also grill the tocino, by searing both sides on a grill over high heat and then letting them finish cooking over low or indirect heat. You can replicate this method indoors using a grill pan to sear and a low oven (around 250F) to finish.
