Pork Hamonado Recipe

Level up your cooking with this pork hamonado recipe! It is easy!

In the Philippines, when we say hamonado, we know that it is something sweet. This term came from the Spanish word jamonado, which means prepared like ham or hamon in Tagalog. Despite the similar names, it is different from the ham that we commonly know.

Hamonado is a Pinoy dish that is made of meat marinated and cooked in a sweet pineapple sauce. It may look like adobo at first sight, but it is not. The difference lies in that this dish is a sweet one and without vinegar. Pork is not the only dish that can be cooked this way. You can have chicken too. There are also variations in how it is being cooked. Some would marinate the meat in pineapple sauce first. Others would not. There are also versions that use ketchup or tomato sauce, making it afritada style.

This recipe may not have marinated the meat, but it is super tasty! Try it now!
