1 1/2 to 2 lbs pork butt, sliced thinly and cut to serving portions
3/4 cup 7-up or Sprite
1 tsp pepper
3 tsp salt
2 tbsp garlic powder
1 cup sugar
2 to 3 drops red food coloring
Combine all ingredients together. Adjust coloring as desired. Allow to stand in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours to allow flavors to permeate meat. It can also be stored in the freezer for later use.
To prepare, place in a wide and deep skillet with around two cups of water. Simmer until meat is tender and water has evaporated. Add 2 to 3 tbsps oil and continue to cook until meat has caramelized, moving in pan regularly to prevent from burning.
Alternatively, tocino slices can be pan-fried directly in around one inch of oil. However, note that the amount of seasonings used to cure meat may need to be adjusted in this method.
