How to make Pork Hamonado:

Pork Hamonado is simply pork sweetened in pineapple sauce.

This dish is usually served during the Christmas season along with other sumptuous dishes that I plan to feature soon. A popular Christmas dish in the Philippines that is very similar to ham.


1 kilo ham, sliced thinly

2 whole pickles, sliced thinly

1 cup pork fat, sliced thinly

1 small can pineapple chunks, drained (juice set aside)

1 medium-sized carrot, cut into strips

1 small can pineapple juice

1 cup brown sugar

1/4 tsp saltpeter

1 tsp salt

round pineapple slices for garnishing


1. Combine the sugar, salt and saltpeter on a large plate. Rub the ham with this mixture thoroughly, making sure that the meat is coated well.

2. On a large platter, arrange the ham, pork fat, pickles, carrots and pineapple chunks alternately.

3. Form the meat and other ingredients into a roll by tying a thread around them. ( Make sure the thread is thick enough to hold the meat and other ingredients.) Save any drippings from the meat roll.

4. Combine the meat drippings, pineapple juice, and the juice drained from the pineapple chunks. Marinate the meat in this mixture overnight.

5. Boil the meat for 1 hour. Cut the thread tied around the meat roll. Let the meat cool for a few minutes.

6. Garnish the meat roll (on top and on the sides) with pineapple slices.
