Now that you


have you have
made your own

homemade pork
tocino, all you
need to do is
cook it. I cook my
tocino by boiling
it with 2 cups
water and 1/4
cup cooking oil.

The meat gets


tender as the
water starts to
boil. After quite a
while, the water
evaporates and
the cooking oil
will be left. This

will instantly fry


the meat. Make
sure to turn the
meat over after a
few minutes of
frying to cook the
opposite side of
the tocino. Doing

this will give you


a tender and
delicious pork
tocino that is
cooked just
about right.
