Pork Hamonado Recipe

Pork Hamonado Recipe

Pork Hamonado is simply pork sweetened in pineapple sauce. You can typically find sweetness in some Filipino dishes and this is just one of them. This dish is usually served during the Christmas season along with other sumptuous dishes that I plan to feature soon. Some of you might be thinking if sugar can really go well with meat just like with this Pork Hamonado Recipe.

The thing that I liked most about this Pork Hamonado Recipe is its simplicity. Imagine cooking a great tasting dish in only 3 steps: marinating, pan-frying, and simmering. This dish can easily be prepared even by novice cooks. Another thing that interests  me was the taste. I really liked the balance of flavor. I thought that it was magnificent.
